Selvedge Madness (or, What You’ll Never See Me Sew)

Look at this amaaaaaaaazing selvedge quilt sewed up by Jacquie of Tallgrass Prairie Studios!

Good gracious! Jacquie's Selvedge Quilt

As with every quilt she makes, the results are gorgeous and inspiring… but…  people, do you understand what a selvedge quilt is?  What it requires?  What teeny, vanishingly small bits of fabric you’re working into blocks?

Close-up of Jacquie's Selvedge Quilt--the madness of it all!

Yeah, as much as I love selvedges and quilting, and as much as I love saving and using every obnoxiously small scrap I create, you will NEVER see me make one of these.  My need for satisfyingly-paced projects would never permit it.  Jacquie, I salute you and your glorious quilt.  Well done!

  1. I am in love with this quilt too. And I really loved the way it was quilted also — of course, I’m inspired by anything other than the (sort of) straight lines I can make. Excited to follow what you make!
