    Your quilt is really awesome. I can't help but think of it as an "I Spy" for quilters! (Smile)

    Awesome!!! I love anything made from salvages. I can't believe that we used to throw them away.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!

    This is inspiring me to work with the selvages I've been saving! As far as quilting how about some strong diagonal lines to enhance the center medallion to this lovely quilt. A cross hatching type of design.

    PS Thanks jammin jane for resurfacing this thread. I would have missed it otherwise.
