I have to admit, I really enjoy using up the little pieces of fabric that are leftover AFTER making a quilt.
When I was introduced to selvage quilts I while back I couldn’t help but think that there was a quilt I wanted to make!
Immediately, I began saving my selvages. I’ve been saving for around a year or so. I have a pretty good stash and I was recently inspired to start making it after seeing a selvage quilt tutorial at the Pleasant Home blog.
I was very inspired by her quilt. She gives step by step instructions in case you’re interested in checking it out! She came up with a really neat trick for using fusible interfacing. Very Cool!!!
Here’s what my project is looking like. Note: I’m not working solely on this quilt. This is something I expect to take out from time to time and work on.
Here you see my overflowing bucket of selvages.
I just have a few blocks made. I can see that this will be fun project to take out and work on from time to time. It will take a while to build but will be very fun when finished!
Here’s our little Chihuahua, Mo. He’s a HUGE lover and his most favorite thing to do in the world is snuggle with you (and eat). It’s actually probably a toss up as to which is is favorite.
I’ve been a bit absent from my blog because we’ve been fixing up our spare room. I spent all weekend painting. Not getting to do as much quilting as I want because the house is kind of a mess but we’ll get it back into shape soon. It’s so nice to see a room with a fresh coat of paint. It changes everything!
