Selvage Quilt Workshop!

 These delightful and adventurous quilters made a silk cigar style selvage quilt on Saturday in Harwinton, CT. We took this photo before the end of the day, but you can see that there was a lot of progress being made!  This was their first selvage project, and it's the most challenging quilt in the  book: Quilts from the Selvage Edge. Lots of laughs, we had the best time, as quilters are known to do.  :)







This is a non-selvage, raw-edge version by Judi. Well, there is one selvage, and she asked me to sign it as a souvenir of the day. Isn't that sweet? This will be a hexagonal quilt for a table (under glass). Cool. I love how quilters see an idea and add their own twist to it! Thanks for a wonderful day!!

That looks like a fun day in Harwinton, Karen. I'm glad you were able to visit and introduce more quilters to the fun of selvages.
