I have been sewing a lot the past week or so. A while back I had sewn a bunch of selvedges onto leftover batting strips. I finally decided to do something with those strips. I sewed them into columns with a narrow strip between each and added borders. I free motion quilted using Aurifil 50# thread in white. I quilted right through all the selvedges and tried to mimic the dots on the selvedges in the quilting at the bottom. I thought it would be hard to quilt through especially since the selvedge strips were sewn onto batting and then I used batting again to sandwich the whole thing, but no, it didn't make a difference at all.
I used my favourite grey solid, Free Spirit Manatee for the binding.

Have you seen the awesome quilts that Christina Cameli makes with the 10 degree ruler?
Here's the backing fabric I used. I purchased this while visiting Quincy's Quilting in Leduc, Alberta last September.
That's it for now. I hope you get a chance to finish up a project today. It sure feels good! 😊
