86 x 99 inches, another really big quilt
I started making the selvage trapezoid blocks last year but had to put them up so I could finish Phebe. Originally, I'd purchased the background fabric, decided it was too bold and purchased a dark gray solid for the background and hot pink for the sashing. When it came time to piece it, I just could not make myself use those fabrics so I went back to the original background. These colors are out of my comfort zone (red) but I like it now that the top is pieced!
I think Jesse likes it too!
I'd like to say this is the last selvage project for a little while but there's another project which may or may not happen soon. Ever get a quilting project into your brain and it won't leave you alone?
Here's my Selvage Star quilt which I bound with selvage binding this past week. This quilt will be entered into our Common Threads 2014 Quilt Show coming up June 26 - 28 in Wichita. I hope anyone within driving distance will come see our show!
I'm busy stitching sleeves and labels onto my quilt entries but yesterday evening, I worked on an applique block. Yes, I think my Quilter's Seasonal Color Disorder is under control and my applique projects are once again looking like I might want to work on them!
Until next time, Mayleen
