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.
Very nice - I like selvages with kiwi!ReplyDelete
A really fun idea, lookin' great. Using selvages is so popular these days so I've been saving some for future use.ReplyDelete
So different. I can't wait to see the finished result.ReplyDelete
