WHAT TO DO WITH SELVAGES

I stopped in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop today and was surprised to see this stunning quilt.  Barb Hassenrik made the quilt.  She said the pattern calls for "made fabric," but she used all selvages.  We're hoping she will have a class on making this.

Not only is the front beautiful, but I wanted to show you this fabric on the back!  Isn't it fantastic! A special thank you to Barb for sharing with us.  And a special thank you to Cathy for taking the pictures for me.  Since I hadn't planned on being a the shop, I didn't have my camera and I'm an old lady with only a flip phone.  LOL

DON'T FORGET:

Wow I LOVE that!!! It reminds me of birch trees. I think it would be easy enough to make...very liberated piecing, ala Gwen Marston.

Hello, love the idea of using selveges! It's a great quilt. I think you can credit Amanda Jean Nyberg, from Crazy Mom Quilt, for the pattern / the inspiration. Her pattern is called Bright Birch Trees.

Yes!! I purchased the pattern in Cannon Beach, Oregon and immediately knew I would replace the pieced and inserted "trees" with my saved selvages. Barb Hassenrik.
