This one’s entered into the “Scrap Quilt” category. I don’t know how much more scrappy one can get than to make a quilt with selvedges.
Selvedges are those pretty, ends of a cut of fabric that run parallel to the fold. It’s a fun creative challenge to try to incorporate the selvages into a quilt. It’s safe to say much fun was had in the piecing of this quilt and in the quilting.
These selvedges are arranged in a medallion quilt, which is now one of my favorite types a quilt. They have such a rich history!
I can’t decide which is my favorite part, the flying geese of the herringbone looking strip? Or is it the hour glass blocks?
Once, it was pieced I quilted using Free Motion Quilting and gave each layer of the Medallion a different treatment.
To cap off the selvedge fun, I used selvage binding (tutorial here!). My favorite type of binding by far. So fun!
And that’s that!
