Adventures of a Novelty Fabric and Selvage Obsessed Quilter

Glad you stopped by!

I am a busy wife and the mom of 19 year old twins, a boy and a girl who are Sophomores at Syracuse University.

I have been quilting since the spring of 2008. I love novelty fabrics, colorful and unique.

Selvage quilting is addictive! Who knew the "junk" we cut off and threw out would be what I now save! I started a new tradition when I travel--visiting quilt stores! I particularly enjoy going to stores that have been named in the Quilt Sampler Featured Shop Lists-

Strata Gizing class!

Yesterday, I took a class at mouse creek quilts

It was great fun, and reminded me how much I enjoy
taking classes and learning new techniques!

Some photos:
First you sew together a strata:

The ruler is on the left side of the picture.
You cut wedges, alternating from top and bottom

I chose to make a half circle:

The classes finished projects!

The class was taught by Maria Sendzik.
She was terrific and I know I will
take more classes with her.

Claire, the owner of Mouse Creek, was in the class with us.
She looked at me and asked
"I wonder what this would look like out of selvages?"

We will soon find out!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. Claire and I must have the same thought process because that is what I was thinking as I read - what would it look like with selvages?

    I am thinking a selvage Christmas tree skirt might be in my future - after many other selvage projects.

  2. A whole circle would make a beautiful challah cover.

  3. Love the circles! They look amazing!

  4. Wow! I love this! I think I'll have to try something in this method. Are you using a special ruler?

  5. This in incredible! I love circles. Your colors look great!
