I'm so excited about my new Selvage Edge project! I was inspired by the Selvage Edge Blog and Karen Griska's wonderful book, Quilts from the Selvage Edge available through Amazon.
So, here is my first official finished project:
I have labeled each page of the book with the corresponding needle. I've also put them in the order of most use for me.
Why did I not do this sooner? 20 years into quilting and I just now thought of it? Duh.
These were my needle books until today. They are cute, and both of them were gifts from quilt friends, but what are these needles? What are their purpose?
This is the "stock room" for the needles, I had no less that 5 packs of the same size quilting needle.....
I sorted the selvages into long and short, doesn't this look neat and pretty? Well it isn't now....it's a mess up there with cuttings all over that work space.
Mid afternoon I received 2 wonderful packages in the mail full, and I mean, stuffed with an incredible array of selvages. Thanks Carmella and Kathie!!
Here is a sneak peak at what is next. I have made many more of these blocks, but I am unhappy with the way the color thing is going and think I will change that up today.
Hi Mary - hope the moving in and getting settled is going well!
