    Selvedge Quilts

    In between other larger, more intense quilting projects, I have been finished sewing another two selvedge quilt tops and have another one underway. This is how my dining table looks on the days I 'play' with my selvedges.

    I have been making lots and lots of tote bags, the first picture are bags which are quilted and fully lined. The second picture is some of the 'fishing' themed tote bags I am making ready to sell at a market I am attending in April.

    I like your selvedge quilts - especially the second one. These seem doable for me . . . mixing the selvedges with scraps. Your bags are inviting too. I'll have to put all these on my "to do" list.

    Love your bags,and excellent use of selveges, I really like your bags, the fish ones are just wonderful. My favorite is the fish with the red wavy background going for the dragonfly.

    no, the bags are lined with coordinating fabric. The selvedges are used for the outer panels of bags or made into quilts.

    Haha, I would if I didn't keep buying them or accepting them from my quilting friends. My obsession with them is growing every time I sew another project. I do wonder what will happen to the quilts I make though, no one seems interested in them other than me.
