Quilt Diva Julie of Memphis, TN just finished her new selvage quilt named "Garcia." Why Garcia, you ask? I wondered, too. When she showed it to her law firm co-workers and asked for name suggestions, someone said "Garcia" because the colors (especially the print on the back) reminded her of Jerry Garcia...his music and ties. Everyone agreed and the issue was settled.
This quilt is machine quilted and has been laundered. Why did we think (in the old days, a few years ago) that selvages would twist and buckle and do other bad things? I love how she adds such nice color in her selvage arrangements.
This is one beautiful quilt, isn't it? It makes me want to drop everything and make a selvage quilt.
