It seems we selvage quilters are also getting interested in using fabrics with the printed word on them. This is the back of a quilt made by my friend Ellen Johnson of Chalfont, PA. The fabric is completely covered with French text! It's perfect as backing because this started out as a bed sheet (from a catalog), so there is no seam interrupting the text! I love quilts with writing. Even if I don't know what it says! I'm better at "See Jane run. Run. Run. Run." That's not redundant; it's reassuring!
This quilt was beautifully machine quilted by Ruth Stoneseifer.
