Awesome Little Selvage Quilt!


This beautiful little table topper selvage quilt is the creation of Wendi Irons of Galt, CA. She used a pattern by Schnibbles for inspiration. This quilt measures 33" x 33." Didn't she do a wonderful job?

I can't quite figure out what it is about this quilt that I like so much. Is it the bright colors, or maybe it's the crisp white border that ties in with the selvages so well? The binding is pretty too.
This would be a stunning quilt studio wall quilt! Wouldn't take that many selvages either. Wendi says it didn't even make a dent in her selvage stash. :)

I like the off kilter selvedge blocks and the striped binding. That's what really catches my with with the great little quilt!

Great use of selvages! It's hard to make a dent in a selvage collection - I think they multiply in storage like rabbits.

this is SO sweet! My selvage stash is getting too big. I have to do something with them soon.

You're right. It's the crispness of the white that makes it so appealing. I've noticed the same thing about other quilts I've seen in the past year... those with white sashing just pop. Guess I used to think the same thing about black, but black's more challenging to work with, especially when it comes to quilting.

Thanks for sharing another lovely with all of us.
