Let Your Selvages Suggest the Background and Border!

Feathers made of selvages are so striking in this quilt. Get started with the mini quilt with 3 feathers or make the large one with 20 feathers.

The mini version will be lovely on your wall or table while the larger quilt is sized for a lap or crib. Either one will be lovely in your home and show off your quilt-making skills.

Select a background and border that set off the feathers. If you tend to work in a particular color theme than your selvages will reflect that and suggest a background color.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
