After the Wedding - A Raw-Edge Broderie Perse Quilt!

"After the Wedding" by Debby Schnable, made with raw-edge applique, and embellished with lace, broderie perse, and embroidery. Amazing!

Debbie tells about this quilt on her blog: Debby Quilts. She says they're fun to make (she's made several), and they hold up well with washing too! She calls this "After the Wedding" because it's kind of messy. Ha!

Next, take a look at another double wedding quilt by Debby, "Jewel Tone." This one was featured on the Quilt Inspiration blog. I love the broderie perse in these quilts!

Green Odd Ball Quilt

This quilt called "Odd Ball" is in the book: Geared for Guys by Emily Herrick. It was featured on the FreshLemons blog. I think the guys in my family would definitely like this one. Great photo location too!

Emily's book is an ebook, available on Etsy here.

Joanell's Quilt

Take a look at this happy quilt by fiber artist Joanell. I love how the bold fabrics add so much excitement to this quilt. The best fabric is the green with red/pink veins. And the black and white stripes, of course. Nice!

Clever Asterisk Block Variation

Here's a very clever variation of the Asterisk block: add 4 little white triangles, one on each corner. A snowball style block. I like the use of white too. This was done by MarciGirlDesigns. Nice job!

Remember the Red Zinger Selvage Quilt?

Remember the Red Zinger selvage quilt? Many of them are shown on the Red Zinger Pinterest board. If you have made one and it's not included there, please email me at karengriska@optonline.net and I'll add it.

If you are new to the Selvage Blog, take a look at the Pinterest board (link above) and the pattern. This goes together fast. Cut some selvages wide so you can use fussy-cut images like the sock monkey below. (Otherwise, average width is about 1 1/2.")
