The sixth and final theme of Project Quilting hosted by Kim @ Persimon Dreams was: Scraptastic.
This was my first year participating in Project Quilting. Thanks to Sarah @ Sarah Goer Quilts for encouraging me to play along. I thought it would be extremely difficult to both come up with an idea for a project and make that project within one week. I wouldn't say it was easy, but it definitely was do-able, and I would participate again.
I've been collecting selvedges for years but never did anything with them. But what to make?? The quickest and easiest was a simple 9-patch of rainbow colours. I used 55 different selvedges to create this 14-inch wall hanging.
Of course, my favourite orange had to be at the top.
The quilting is organic wavy lines in both directions.
There are a lot of great selvedges...some from my own fabric and some collected from friends.
I did a faced binding, using this tutorial. I ended up doing the binding twice, because I sewed the strips to the back of the quilt rather than to the front. Thank goodness it was a small project.
Thanks to Kim and Trish for organizing and hosting Project Quilting. I'm happy to say that I tried something new and survived.
