Selvage Along: Final Link Up!

Today is the last day of the Selvage Along (#selvagealong)! Hopefully you had a great summer and got some awesome selvage-y inspiration. I know I did! There are just so many things you can do with selvages.


Last week I finished my Selvage Rainbow Bookcase Quilt, which was my goal at the beginning of the Selvage Along. Whee! You can read about my new favorite quilt right here.

 I also want to share the AMAZING mini quilt that Helga (@qallieq) made me for the Cotton and Steel Mini Quilt Swap on Instagram. I can't believe I get to keep it!! I had mentioned my love for C + S selvages (they have quotes, cool colors, and unique fonts), and just WOW! Would you believe Helga considers herself a beginner quilter? The workmanship on this thing is just lovely.


 This mini actually won recognition for our swap group and was photographed by Cotton and Steel for a lookbook. How cool! Because I had to send my mini away to them almost right after I received it, they softened the blow by sending back several fat quarters. Thanks, Helga and Cotton and Steel! I can't WAIT to hang this in my new sewing room. Yay selvages and quilty friends!

  2. The churn block is beautiful. I've made some squares, and now I may do this one. Thank you for getting my bags of selvages up on my table. I'll link up later tonight.
