Star of LeMoyne Selvage Quilt by Elena McDowell!

Elena McDowell has done it again with this stunning Star of LeMoyne quilt! She has made this selvage star before, but this time she wanted to see how it would look with a black background. I think it looks great! I especially like the swirly designs on some of the selvages, and the use of some very dark selvages. This quilt measures 15 " square.

I like the artistic way Elena photographed her quilt, taking it on an angle with the addition of a little oak leaf whimsy. Nice job, Elena!

Be sure to visit Elena's website for fabulous inspiration: http://www.quiltsbyelena.com/.

Really cute! You're inspiring me with all of this cute selvage-ness.

Michelle, when you make something with selvages, email a photo to me at karengriska@selvagequilts.com so we can share it with the world on the Selvage Blog.

I love how the Internet allows us to inspire each other no matter how far away we live. There's a big neighborhood of quilters here in cyberspace! :)

Just when I think "That's enough selvage quilting for now," I get another idea to try! Selvage quilting is curiously addictive. It's more fun than you might imagine, so you have been warned! Have fun:)

How did you put the star together without a lot of bulk right in the middle? I tried the star but the middle stuck up; is there a trick for this star block?
