I have to admit, I have been keeping a secret. I finished an awesome quilt for an awesome lady last week and am just now able to post it on here. Jacquie, a quilting artist that I met through the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild emailed me a couple weeks ago with the title line, “need your quilting services”. I had met her a few times and was in awe by her and her amazing quilting. I could NOT believe that she was asking me to quilt THE selvage quilt. No pressure, right?!

Here is the finished quilt.

I drew up some ideas for the quilt and was so nervous that she wouldn’t like them. But she did and the rest is quilting history!

This quilt is made up of over 1500 pieces of selvages, some from the fabrics that she has used in her own quilts. It is truly an heirloom and I am so proud to have a part in the quilting of it. Thanks to Jacquie for the pictures, she is multi-talented for sure!
