Green Zinger

I finally started my first selvage quilt today.  I don’t think I can stop – it is so much fun.  I wanted to make my version of the Red Zinger that was in Quilters Home a few months ago.  Of course, I decided to use Lime Green (or Kiwi as the designer calls it) instead of red.

I have been collecting selvages for about 6 months and have a pretty good collection but most people want to give them to me without any color attached.  What I mean is that instead of cutting them 1 to 1 1/2 inches, they just cut the selvage off.  Unfortunately that doesn’t give any allowance for sewing them together.

I am so loving the way it looks.  I have another four blocks almost finished.  I am going to make 36 of them in total so there will be nine big zingers.  Not sure about a border – I just checked on the selvage blog and see that she did a border of selvages  – kind of like a piano key.  I might do that or I might not.

  2. A really fun idea, lookin' great. Using selvages is so popular these days so I've been saving some for future use.
