First Selvedge Quilt

I'm a little late in posting this, but as the saying goes---better late than never!
I made this quilt as a total surprise for DD's 40th birthday in November 2013.


Finished blocks are 8". I drafted the color way in EQ 7. I paper pieced using old phone book pages. They are a dream to rip out. I have tried so many different papers, even ones made especially for paper piecing, and I like these the best.


Can you tell that her favorite color is purple? I cut strips 4 1/2" wide and just randomly sewed them together for the backing. Love how this one turned out!

I am linking to Freemotion by the River, so stop by and see what is being shared this week.

Sew till next time.......
