I’ve been working on 2 selvage edge quilts. One is done, the other is on the long arm.
This one will get donated to the We Honor Veterans local hospice care facility. It measures 39.5×39.5.
I stitched lengths of selvage edge strips together to make “fabric” (details here) and then cut them into 3 1/2 inch squares. Note to self: don’t do that again, working with all those bias edges is a bear.
Close-up of stitching:Someone from quilt guild donated a bolt of fabric she found discounted for my veteran quilt project so I used it on the back:A hazard I discovered in quilting selvage edges with fringe:I learned to try to go in at an angle that would minimize this from happening with some success. When I was stitching the selvage strips together I got to a point where I stopped using any that had the fringe and now I know to avoid them altogether.
Another finish on the Journey, Jackie
