When Kate Basti came out with her Tall Tales block, I had the idea of combining some of my favorite fabrics with their corresponding selvages. The selvage became the spine of the book, and in a couple of instances part of the cover.
I had a fat quarter bundle of bright texty print by Allison Glass that worked perfectly for the sashing. The print was small and subtle, but just right for a quilt containing book blocks.
Mark and I took the quilt to one of our favorite places on the coast, Pacific Grove, at a time in the year when the ice plants were in full bloom.
It was a windy day, but Mark never complains about holding a quilt.
