Fall 2014 Blogger's Quilt Festival, Scrappy Category

Thank you to Amy for hosting the Blogger's Quilt Festival. I can't believe this is my 6th time to participate. This time I am entering my Selvage Block quilt in the Scrappy Quilt category. This quilt is the definition of "scrappy". It is made from selvages cut from the edge of the fabric that so many people throw away, all scraps.
I wrote a detailed blog post here, that explains all about it.You can also see more photos of it in that blog post.

I also entered my Single Girl quilt in the Large Quilt category.
Trash to Treasure

Quilt Stats:
Name: Trash to Treasure
Fabric: selvage remnants 
Backing: Architextures 108" extra wide in Blue

Looking back at my other entries I can tell I usually go with an emotional entry. Usually a quilt that I have gifted or that had a big impact on my quilt journey.

This is your quilt that I just want to snuggle under and read all the different selvedges in it. Hours of fun and entertainment!

Now this really is a scrappy quilt - not just some material you have bought and cut into scraps! Where did you get so many selvedges from? Anyway, it is very effective.
