Almost Wordless Wednesday

These selvage blocks have turned out to be sew easy it's addictive and I stayed up waaaaay past bedtime Saturday night (altho I blame it on the audiobook I was about to finish). This is about half the center. I'll then add a border in a yet-to-be-picked color and then another border of selvage blocks. I swear it's much prettier in person. These photos make it look pretty drab.


I took this to guild last night for a little show-n-tell and to ask for any selvages no one wants. They loved it and want a "5 Minute Flash" (mini-class) sometime. That might mean they won't share their selvages :(


Janet - can you find your selvages??!! Val found hers...of course she was holding the quilt...

This is so neat! I have finally started saving selvages and hope to make something with them some day! Thanks for linking!

I love the look, Sarah. When I enlarge the photos I can find some of them. I just look for the Kansas Trouble prints, since that is what most of the batch I sent was made of. I've got a few more now from other fabrics, but will wait to gather a bigger pile before I send them off!

I'm not a selvedge person but I like your quilt.
It's great to actually make something from stuff that would otherwise be thrown away.
Great job.
Can't wait to see it finished.
