Beautiful Blue Postcards

Check out these stunning selvage postcards made by Elena McDowell of NC. I love how she adds a splash of red in the sea of blue selvages. Notice the "shaggy" selvages on both postcards. And I like the big flowers too. She has such a killer selvage stash! Look at those selvages: Califon, Westminster, American Folk Art Museum, and even one that says "Happy Holidays." Bravo, Elena!

I love how she incorporated the little messages "home" "peace" and "happy holidays" Very clever girl!

I love the idea of selvage postcards and will have to give them a try.

Your Red Zinger quilt is a favorite of mine too and I have the magazine tucked aside to make with strings one of these days.

The postcards are so fun and easy, but what's the best is how happy your friends are when they receive one! It's great to save up those funny selvedges and then stick them in where they will get noticed. Happy Selvedging to all!
