Selvage Quilts

Ever since I discovered the colorful quilts made from selvages, I wanted to try one.  I started cutting 1 1/2" selvage strips and have saved them for several years.

It is recommended to sew them onto muslin first for stability, but I decided to break the rules and sew them directly onto my batting.  It's working!

This is a fun project and seeing favorite fabrics that I no longer have sure brings back memories.

A Quilt For Avery

I just finished another baby quilt.  This one is for Avery, her nursery colors are turquoise, lavender and light grey.  I hope this quilt wraps her in loving warmth when she makes her appearance in October.
