Karen Griska Etsy Shop

A couple of years ago I bought this fabulous book written by Karen Griska, and subsequently started cutting my selveges off every fabric in my cupboards (a great way to tidy them up too). 

I've only made this quilt so far but I have a huge collection of selveges in my 'Must Do" box and have used them in several other projects.  From the book I have been a follower of Karen's blog   and more recently Karen's Etsy quilt Shop.  Wow, these quilts are awesome.  I can't imagine selling any of mine..  well, the ones I get finished haha.  but these are wonderful eye candy so pop in and have a look and spread the word.  Here's some of the 40+ quilts on sale:

Thank you to all my new followers who have been to visit my blog and left comments.  It's wonderful to have new friends in blogging land. My next post will be my 300th post so I'm going to have a giveaway.  I'll be back over the weekend with details and photos.

Ah so that is where your passion for selvages came from!

I love the work, but would never do it myself! just too fiddly for me.
There is a bit of Gees Bend look in her last couple of quilt photos.
keep well, and for sure, I'll be there to get a gift from New Zealand!

Dear Karen,
your Selvage Quilt looks absolutely stunning. I love Karen Griskas Blog and Etsy Shop, too, she's a great artist and so kind! And, remember, without her blog, we wouldn't have known from each other ;-)
A parcel from Germany is on its way to you!
Hugs, Martina
