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-

Selvage Pillows!!!

I have been thinking of making new
pillows for my daybed in the
room o' selvages for sometime now.
I wanted them to be mostly black and white,
with some reds, yellows and tans.
I won this awesome fabric on Ebay recently,
and knew it would be perfect for pillows!
I thought 5 selvage pillows would be too much,
so I made 3 out of the fabric,
and 2 out of selvages.

mid selvage transformation!
I love how they turned out,
and I think they give the daybed
a nice look!


  1. Yes, they are wonderful. I think two is just the right number.

  2. Wow you work quick. Beautiful.

  3. Jill, you are amazing! Love the pillows. I think we should have the World Selvage conference in your yellow room!

  4. Wow, now that is just one wonderful selvage room!!

  5. The pillows look great playing off the black and white fabric. Great room.

  6. Terrific! The selvage and b/w fabric pillows on the selvage/string quilt look wonderful!
