Bloom Selvedge Pillow

Bloom Selvedge Pillow

About this Quilt

Finished Size : 15½" square

Designed By : Cindy Wiens

Selvedge edges, the part of the fabric we usually cut off before starting a quilting project, have a lot of fun information. They often include the names of the designer, the fabric collection, and the manufacturer, as well as the colored registration dots that indicate the colors used during printing.

This Bloom Selvedge Pillow is an easy foundation-pieced pattern that showcases the selvedge information, repurposing something you’d normally toss into a charming record of your fabric stash. The pattern comes with step-by-step directions to make sewing easy and fun as well as a hexagon template to get perfect “petals” each time.
Make a Bloom Selvedge Pillow for yourself and a sewing pal or your quilt group to celebrate your quilting adventures together. The pillow will become a special “remember when” keepsake that you can all talk about for years to come.
