Martina's New Selvage Spiderweb Quilt


This fabulous selvage spiderweb quilt was made by my friend and quilter/lawyer Martina Odenthal of Cologne, Germany! And there she is in the photo above. The longarm quilting was done by her friend Brigitte who also chose the perfect backing for this quilt. What a great idea to quilt the spiderweb design in the white areas. Their quilting buddies contributed selvages for this big quilt. Beautiful job!

See more photos on Martina's blog Stufen Zum Gericht.

So great. I just love a quilt like this that you can examine carefully for hours looking at every little bit. And yes, the spiderweb quilting definitely adds to the beauty.

That quilt is amazing. I've been saving my selvages to do one like it. May take a while longer to gather them all up though!
