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-

Featured on the Selvage Blog today!

with my selvage chair!

It was truly a labor of love to re-do
this chair. and give it a new life!

I am going to giveaway some of my more
"sedate" selvages in honor of finishing the chair,
to help others discover or continue selvage quilting!
Many wonderful people have sent me
selvages- now I'll pay it forward!
I have quite a bit saved up, so I will send out 5 packages,
since this is the 5th time I have been
 featured on the Selvage Blog!!

Take a look back thru my blog
to see how I made the chair cover.
It was quite a sight to see!

There are a few rules, of course, but they are simple.

Leave me a comment here for 1 entry.

Become a follower of my blog, or if you
already are a follower, say that in comment # 2.

Blog about it and then come back and leave
me a third comment telling me about it!

Remember that if you don't have an email attached
 to your profile, please update it today.
 I can't reply to no reply emails.

  9. I recently had the good fortune to be featured on the Selvage Blog with a wallhanging, but your chair is an accomplishment beyond belief. Re-covering a chair is no easy task (I have one very similar) but to first sew about 5 yards of selvage is unbelievable! Superb job!

    Sign me up!!! you inspire me to try a selvege progect. I have been starting to cut and keep my selvedge pieces. I have found myself noticing what kind of selvedge a fabric has as I am picking it out. I think I have caught the fever:)

  27. Amazing chair - I love it! I've never visited your blog before, but it's great. I always visit quilt shops when I travel too, and especially the ones in Quilt Sampler. I try to take the magazines with me and have the women in the shop autograph them for me. (I hope they put staff pictures back in - I miss them.)

  38. I am one of your devoted followers and have you on a direct feed so I don't miss anything. I too have become addicted to making things with selvages, but not quite as wonderful as your chair. I have also had one post on the Selvage blog and am hoping to make another large quilt using them. Please drop my name in your hat for the drawing. Thanks much. Dar in Missouri
