Debra Posthumus of Terre Haute, Indiana created these delightful selvage applique designs. She bought the blue fabric (a shirt) at a garage sale for 50 cents, and she got 8 embroidery hoops at a church sale for $1. And of course, the selvages were absolutely free!
Debra likes the bird (above) the best, and she uses it in the header for her blog: www.quiltchicksrule.blogspot.com.
I think my favorite is the house and tree. The shapes are just right, and I like all the selvages. I like how the door stands out.
The line, "I love cake" is from an episode of "That 70's Show."
Even though the photo below is a little washed out, I wanted to show you the teacup. The steam looks like question marks to me. And I love that tea tag. Nice job, Debra!
