Selvage Edge Quilt

I finished a smaller veteran quilt with a different layout here last week.Selvage Edge Large Quilt

This one looks like a hot mess. No more selvage edge quilts in my near future, that’s for sure.

I did have fun quilting it though.

Here is a close-up of the back:

The quilting is hard to see, I used a gray variegated thread for the blocks and red for the sashing. I knew the red would pretty much disappear with the busy back.

The quilt finished is 46 x 55.

Finally done with the strips and selvages, on the Journey. Jackie

    I actually don’t think it’s as much a hot mess as you may think. From the distance of looking at a photo on a blog, that great whonky diamond design really comes out. I think the sashing does quiet it down a bit, which is nice, but I think it all works!
