    I am always looking for more ways to use my selveges and this is just wonderful. The picture frames add so much. I am thinking cats sitting amidst the shelves. Oh, thank you so much for sharing your wonderful creation!

    What a wonderful idea for the selvages! The quilt is really great and I love the addition of the cups and saucers and photos!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    What fun!! Really like this idea.. google kansas city library garage. The book spines line the outside of the parking garage. I'm going to combine both ideas !! Love your blocks too! Thanks for the post !
    Sometimes you just have to sit in a chair and jog in order to get anywhere.

    I second what everybody else has said. And so many people misspell selvage edges, or selvages.

    Your quilt is very nice. You did a great job, especially without a pattern.
