My secret sister from MQResourse sent me this great pile of selvages before I went on vacation.  Isn’t she the best?

Selvage stash

Karen Griska at Selvage Blog has asked us to post photos of our selvage stashes.  Mine is very small compared to some of those that have been posted.  I think I have a long way to go before I have enough selvages to make something.  Someday…

I know I could use more since I came across Karen’s Griska’s blog.  She will be giving away a really neat selvage pillow she made, so keep an eye on her blog.

Here is another blog to visit that is giving away a collection of Moda selvages…Moda Lissa.  Both of these blogs have some great inspiration when it comes to selvages.  If you haven’t started saving yet you probably will start after checking these out.

Let me know what you think and thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful week.

Selvage quilts

I don’t know why but I really like the look of them.   I don’t have one but I really, really want to make one.  If you aren’t familiar with them, here is a link to Karen Griska’s blog.  If you scroll down the page a little, the “Red Zinger” is on the right.  Here is the link to the “how-to” page and another link for directions to make selvage quilts.  Thanks Karen for sharing this info.

I’m not sure what it is about this quilt but I know that I want one just like it.  As you can imagine, this is going to take lots and lots of selvages.  I have asked a couple of my friends that quilt to save theirs for me.  If you are reading this blog and don’t think you will ever have the urge to make a selvage quilt, please consider saving your edges for me.  I’m willing to pay the postage to have them mailed once you collect a nice bag full.  If you are willing to participate just leave a comment and I’ll get in touch with you.  Thanks for thinking about it.

I have actually been doing some sewing lately and will post some pictures, hopefully  tomorrow.
