So many Selvages

When you have too many selvages, you make a selvage quilt. This is Connie's third one--she's making them for all the grandkids.

Generally, I quilt the selvage bits in white and then use matching thread for the solid fabric portion. This time, I opted for something different.  Matching thread in the solid, but contrasting in the selvages using my "go to" Heatwave pattern.

In the center "x"s, I opted for a soft swirl.

And in the outside border, to tie it all together, alternately sized piano keys.

And because its always the most fun to look at ... a shot of the back!

Two posts this month and its still summer!!  Hooray for me!!
