I won a bag of selvages from Karen at the Selvage Blog.
Not just selvages....
some really cute selvages.....
I think these acorns are my favorite...
but these are pretty cute too!
I've been using my standard rotary cutter when I remove my selvages from the fabric, but these selvages all had curved edges instead of straight, which I think is a very clever idea. Note to self, buy one of those wavy edged cutters!!

I sure hope my jar fills up soon, I'm eager to use these strips, although I'm thinking my first selvage project may be a tuffet.
I ran across a blog today displaying pictures of an I Spy quilt and it reminded me that I'd yet to blog about the one I Spy quilt I've made. My goal is to have blogged about all my quilts by my one year anniversary, which is only 3 months away.
So here's Quilt #21 - Maya's I Spy Quilt
I made it for my niece's daughter. It's just your traditional large hexagon block with triangles added to set. I used the Pat Yamin templates, where you get the hexagon and triangle templates as a set. She has 3 sizes to choose from, 3 1/2 inches, 4 inches or 5 inches.

To add a little fun, I had an embroidery shop embroider some of the I Spy picture words on strips of 2 1/2 inch wide fabric. At the time, Maya was learning to read, so I thought having the words run around the edges of the quilt would help her learn the words while also looking for the pictures. This quilt now lives in Atlanta, Georgia.
I'm still working on my Roundabout and Madeline projects, hopefully I'll have made enough progress to merit taking pictures and sharing soon.
Thanks for stopping by!!
