Kay Rindall of St. Paul, MN is well into her first selvage project. I love the faces on the selvage in the bottom photo; it's from the St. Jude's Hospital fabric line. I really like these blocks. The sashing in the blocks is nice and narrow, like the selvages.
I wonder how Kay will use these blocks in a quilt. Maybe she'll use a black and white striped sashing, or a selvage sashing, or maybe she'll set them on point! We'll see. Nice job, Kay!
About selvages, Kay says, "I already buy enough yardage to be sure I get the part of the selvage I want -- and when buying a FQ, I always open it to make sure it's from the printed selvage side. But I dread the day I find myself buying the fabric strictly because of the selvage!!"
If that happens, we're here for you, Kay. :)
