This dress I DID NOT make...but I do love it. A friend of mine made it. It is made from selvages. I sooo badly want to make a selvage skirt. Wouldn't that be FUN!!!! 


  1. Wow...congratulations to all of you...great quilting!

  2. Well done, everyone, on your triumph at the County Fair!

  3. Awesome Kristina!
    You must be very proud!
    What a cute & talented bunch you are!

  4. WOOT! WOOT!
    Congratulations to you all of your adorable and talented tadpoles!
    I bet you are one proud mama.

  5. Awesome! Congrats to all!

    Do you want me to start saving you selvages? Wink, wink!!

  6. Why yes Lisa...I would love selvages. 18" or longer would be fantastic!

  7. Is Devin's quilt made FOR Devin or BY Devin? Just asking because my son looks to be about the same age, and has just started sewing.

  8. Dayquilt...Devin's quilt was made By Devin...For Devin. It is certainly not her first quilt. She has been sewing with me since she was 4. Thanks for asking. Kristina
