OMG, what have I done? Am I going for the award for most WIPs/UFOs/PhDs (whatever you prefer to call them)? Or most new projects started in one month?
That's right, another has begun.
I've been collecting selvages for a while now, and have been wanting to make a spiderweb quilt with them. So last night when I got home from our sewing date, the basket was calling to me. I found a little tutorial, cut my paper and white fabric, and got going! I did the upper right block first using the selvage pieces without the print. Then I decided to do half of each block with the printed fabric, and half with the typed selvage. I really do love making these blocks, even though they are quite a bit tedious! It is so fun as I sew each fabric remembering what project it was used for (many from my own projects, and many from Mom). I must say though, least favorite part--tearing that darn paper off of the back once all the stitching is done.
I know this project will be around for a while, as I'll always be collecting more selvages, so I'll go ahead and update every so often to let you all know how its coming along!
Oh, and if you usually just throw your selvages and would love to donate them, I can make a wonderful home for them!! Just throwing that out there ;o)
