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-

A start on the selvage chair!

A look at what I "auditioned" today
First, I traced the seat of the chair using muslin and a sharpie:
Then I cut batting to fit the seat as well:
As you saw above, I auditioned some selvages.
Nothing is pinned down yet. I also need to sew some
shorter strips together before I can really make decisions :)
I'm happy it has begun.


  1. It's always a great feeling to have begun a new project, rather then just thinking about it. I love the idea of using selvages...

  2. I hope you post every single part of this process. I can't wait to see it.

  3. this looks so fun!
    I can't wait to see this chair done, a work of art for sure

  4. I agree with Melinda and hope you post every part of the process. It looks great!

  5. You are awesome! This is going to be wonderful!

  6. You are ambitious! Can't wait to see how it turns out.
