What I've Been Doing This Week.... Selvages Rock!

My camera is dying from too much abuse so this is not as good as it could be, but I'm really into this selvage block making. Love it. Some of these are actually ties from packages or ribbons from things I've purchased, but all are fabric! It is so fun. Kinda hooked. I really loved it in theory, but hadn't tried it until I started saving them about six months ago and decided I needed to either start making some or risk being overtaken by selvages! Then, I was given some fabric I thought I would never use, then I decided, hey, I can use it for foundation pieces. Sew, there you are. I have this one white one made and then.......

I branched out and, ta da..... I love these. There are definitely not perfect, but I'm learning and I still have a ton of selvages left to play with. This is just last week too! I have tried to make at least one a day .... and as you can see, I did more than that! Can I say "addictive!"

Hope all of you enjoy your week and you are getting sunshine!


  1. You have made some wonderful blocks. You will have a fantastic quilt once you get them all made!!

  2. Hello,
    I'm loving your blog! That quilt in the header is quite IMPRESSIVE! The color combination is great and one of my favorites. Come tell, there must be a story behind this wonderful quilt.
