How (part of) Trisha's quilt went on a trip to Australia
Back in the fall, when I was working on Trish & Erik's wedding quilt, I ran across some photos of an amazing dress made of selvedges. (If you're not in the know, selvedges are the little strips at the edge of a bolt of fabric that show the designer and the colours used in the fabric.) I cut off the selvedges from the huge piece of green backing fabric because I had a feeling that the amazing dressmaker would be looking for more selvedges in future.
To most people, selvedges are to be thrown away. To Jodie, they are treasure. So, I'm packing up four metres of selvedges and sending them off to Australia so she can create another stunning piece like this:
Check out Jodie's blog for more selvedge projects and lots of photos of the amazing dress. P.S. Jodie, if you're reading this: "Hi! and thanks for getting me inspired to blog about my quilting!"
