I am happy to announce that my Selvedge X Modern Quilt Pattern has been published and is available on Craftsy as a digital download.
We all love to save those beautiful printed selvedges. And, we really mean to use them someday in a special project.
This pattern was designed to put selvedges to good use.You have two options for using this pattern:
- Make this pattern as a minimalist top to showcase cool selvedges.
- OR…make this pattern as a backing and use selvedges from the fabrics on the quilt top!
When you make this quilt, you will use many modern quilting design elements, including minimalism, use of negative space, asymmetry and more.
I used a pale white Moda Grunge in the sample quilt for my background fabric. It really showcases these vibrant selvedges nicely.
Here are three alternate colorways, including a block made using a print for the background fabric.
And how about making a totally scrappy version using low volume scraps for the background?
Pattern includes specific instructions for cutting selvedges to make the X blocks. The X blocks are improvisational and your quilt will be unique to you! Pattern includes instructions for making quilts with or without borders. For a tutorial on making faced bindings, click here.
