I am so excited to share my completed Selvage Whirlwind quilt today. It turned out just the way I had hoped and I love it! I think shots of quilts blowing in the wind are pleasing so I had to include this one. Is it just me?
The finished quilt measures 52 1/2″ x 60″ and is backed with DS Quilts prints that I had in my stash which worked out perfectly. It is bound in the same Kona Putty that I used while piecing.
Humor me…I am going to show close ups of some of my favorite selvages….do you see the row of colorful bees here?
I love the bow ties here in the navy block!
I love this one too with the woman in the high heel and the row of bows.
I was able to fussy cut so that I could include the anchors from the print in the blue block and put the seashell selvage next to them. In case you were wondering if my piecing was random or not; it wasn’t. It was pretty carefully considered throughout. I fussy cut many selvages to include fabric names in their entirety or a favorite designers name, or a certain bit of the actual fabric design that I wanted to show, etc.
And yes, I am continuing to collect selvages! I think I have at least one more selvage quilt in me!
It is spring in New England…the snow is mostly gone but there is no green yet and these are dry leaves left over from the fall!
