It is finally time for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. Last time I featured my Y2K Christmas hexagon quilt and I really do love that quilt but I have a new favorite. You can see part of it at the top of my blog and I use it for a screensaver on my computer and on my IPhone.
Here is my Kiwi Zinger hanging at the East Cobb Quilters’ Guild show last month.
Here is a photo of it straight on after quilting but before binding.
I stippled the selvages and did feathers in the kiwi zingers.
I fell in love with selvage quilts after seeing Karen Griska’s Red Zinger in Quilter’s Home magazine. She writes the Selvage Blog and has lots of interesting selvage project on her blog. I looked at her tutorial on the blog and then just drew my own pattern. Her quilt has a selvage border on it but when I finished the Kiwi Zinger, it told me that it didn’t want a border so I listened to it and bound it with the same Kiwi fabric.
Go to Amy’s blog and check out all the quilts in the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. I can’t wait to check them all out.
By the way, I love selvages and continue to collect them. I am trying to decide on my next selvage quilt but think I will make a selvage tote bag first – I made a small one for a swap earlier this week and it is so cute. I am fortunate that I work in a quilt shop and customers bring selvages to me. My fellow guild members have also been supplying me with selvages so I have plenty of material to continue my selvage journey.
