Selvage - Selvedge Quilt Update

I'm still on my quest to dig into and deplete my UFO's.... WIP's... and all these blasted little projects I start and never finish!

And although I really don't have a pile of them {like all in one place} I'm sure if I did... it would be from floor to ceiling... Goodness.... LOL


This quilt is suppose to be my Scrappy 2010 Quilt!

You can read about my yearly Scrappy Quilts... HERE....

BUT.... I'm getting closer to the finish line on this top! And I'm so excited... {and relieved}...

Here are some blocks I have been working on...

Untitled

I like to do some themed blocks here and there.... Like this 'patriotic' block...

And my Cherry block....

And the Easter block...

I'm undecided when I'm going to stop... As in... How big I'll make this... ???

But if I decide to throw in the towel at a twin size... I'm almost there!

What have you been sewing this week?

It is a beauty! Love how colorful it is. I never thought about a yearly scrappy quilt, but love the idea! Have a happy day!

Lori said...

Oh my goodness this quilt is amazing! I have been saving selvedges myself but don't have near enough to make something as awesome as this!

Anina said...

Gasp! It's stunning. I think you should keep going.
Today I'm hoping to get back to sewing something for the first time in almost two months.

I love this quilt! It would be so fun to snuggle under and read all the cute things on it.

Kelsey said...

This is so amazing!! I've been saving my selvedges so I can someday make one too :)

Ellyn said...

is it getting really heavy? That's something I've noticed sewing with selvedges, they get so thick & heavy! It's gorgeous, but if you go much bigger I bet it will be a monster to quilt!

I love this quilt! I will be starting a selvage quilt soon myself. Really like them! ct

marie said...

Awesome! I save selvedges, but my blocks are on a smaller scale as I make them in to pincushions.

Christa said...

I love this quilt! I'm saving my selvages as well in hopes of making one of these some day. Thank you for sharing.

Katie Fleming said...

What a cute and unique idea! I need to keep saving up my selvages to do something like this. Great job and have fun quilting it!

Wow that looks stunning! What a great use for selvedges. I have a small collection that is slowly growing =D

Carolyn Sullivan said...

OMG and I have just been using them to tie up my tomatoes! that is a beautiful quilt!

Lynn Howell said...

I love it! I want to make one myself now! Any ideas about how you will quilt it?

Needled Mom said...

That is really beautiful.

nellou said...

I'm in love with your quilt! I also save selvedges for quilting. I am saving your photos to look at as inspiration. Love your blocks! Cherry is my favorite.

Debby said...

That is just too stinkin cute, congrats!!!

randi--i have to say said...

Awesome! I have a friend who recently started quilting and she keeps telling me that she loves the selvages. Tomorrow she is coming over to sew and I will have to show her this!

Talin's Corner said...

That is so beautiful, and all from selvages.

Cynthia said...

This is a beautiful, fun quilt! Thanks for showing. As a newbee, I hope to one day have enough selvages to do this. Like you, I'm working on several quilts: A string quilt in pinks, a Kaffe Fassett quilt in amazing colors, and a floral quilt. Ok, one more: a Jellyroll quilt in batiks.

Lynn said...

Gorgeous ... I must start saving my selvages!!!

Gillian said...

I love this quilt. Did you paper piece it?

Jodi - usairdoll said...

I've been saving my salvages and I would love to make a quilt with them. However I still need more. Guess that means more shopping. hehe. Your quilt is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.

Nedra said...

I have bags of selvages, and keep thinking I will do something with them. I like your idea!

blop said...

Girl, I swear you are the energizer bunny w/all that you get accomplished. I do not know how you can have anything UFO...sheesh.

Michelle W said...

Love that idea!!! How exactly are you cutting/piecing all of the pieces?? I think I'm going to start keeping all of my little scraps now!

Wonky Girl said...

Dumb question (maybe). Is the top made from selvages heavier than a regular cotton fabric top? Perhaps a bit more "stiff"? Inquiring mind here wants to know.
LOL

I love this idea for using up saved selvedges. Your quilt is going to be beautiful. I can't wait to see it when it is all finished!

What a great use of selvedges/scraps! I love the idea of the "theme" blocks.
