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-
Christina of A Few Scraps in Portland, OR made this selvage fabric on Spoonflower! Isn't this amazing? The biggest dots are about an inch across. Christina decided to make a smaller version too. You can see both on her blog, and you can purchase this fabric at Spoonflower ($18/yard): large dots, and small dots. I'm liking the busyness of the smaller dots. I've been thinking of this for a long time. Actually doing it is so much better! Yayy, Christina!
Dreaming of doing this, and actually doing it are two different things!
Personally, it is all about the selvage hunt for me!
