Selvage Inchies from Canada

Canadian textile artist Jill Buckley has been making tiny quilts that she calls "inchies," using a variety of techniques. Take a look at her blog: http://www.thequiltrat.blogspot.com/. You can click on her photos to zoom in for a better look. See the selvage inchies? Perfect!

Jill says this goes to show that a small selvage stash is no excuse for not making a selvage quilt.


Here is a sample of the eclectic stuff you can see on her blog: (above) some amazing junk yard art that she photographed, and (below) one of her toy sewing machines. Also see her swirl quilt blocks. Her blog is lots of fun!

don't care for the bug, but the sewing machine is cute. I just don't like bugs!

Karen, you always have such interesting and creative things to share with us all and I just have to say that I am delighted to be included on your site. Thanks!

P.S. Perhaps we shouldn't tell kwiltmakr that those bugs are more than 10 feet tall.......shhhhhhh
