Selvage Table Runner - Feathers


Take a look at Renee's reversible selvage table runner: teal selvage feathers on one side and rows of multi-colored selvages on the other. Renee lives in New Mexico. You can read more about this runner on her blog: Quilts of a Feather. Nice work, Renee!

Rewards of Climbing the Photoshop Learning Curve


Finally, the clergy stole photos for my Etsy shop Shadrach's have clean white backgrounds!  I recently got a new computer and had to learn Photoshop because Picasa 3 is now defunct. Picasa was great, except that it couldn't lighten just one area of a photo. It was all or nothing. So this is my reward for learning a new skill: crisp photos. I love it. Ah, the rewards of biting the bullet and leaving my comfort zone.

I'm looking forward to getting back to quilt-making. My collection of quilt pattern ideas is getting very big! And I'm still saving selvages. We'll see.

Boardwalk Quilt Pattern is Available on Etsy!


 

This quilt combines the charm of a classic string quilt with the light and airy vibe of a modern quilt.
See the pattern here: Boardwalk Quilt Pattern.

There's plenty of time to make a bunch before Christmas! Fun to make. No fuss.




I'm loving that black and white scribbly fabric (above). Can't find the selvage for details. I'll update this post when I find it. Lots of good fabric-arranging fun in the making of this quilt!

Translucent Triangles Quilt


"Translucent Triangles" is my entry for Curated Quilts' upcoming issue featuring triangle quilts. I love how this one simple block arranged in two directions looks like floating triangles. Fun to make too. Pattern coming soon!
