Jenny's Selvage Apron

Jenny from New Zealand made this Christmas apron using selvage strips in the bib (see the close-up photo below). Isn't that clever? It remends me of those Bavarian style lace-up bodices. It was made for a challenge in her quilting group. I like Jenny's best. You can see more on her new blog: http://www.romanyquilting.blogspot.com/.

Thank you for all the book recommendations yesterday! I went to the library and got stocked up. We are getting snow and ice all day today. I also have some chicken and veggies for a pot of soup. Perfect!

Cute apron! By the way, Congratulations is in order. I just picked up Quiltmaker Magazine and low and behold you are in there with your quilt! I saw that quilt hanging at the Empire quilt show and just loved it. Now I can make one too! Thanks for sharing it with us again.

Very clever. I like the idea of using the selvages from the fabric right into the project itself.

This is my first selvage project, but I have plans for many more. Special thanks to Karen for featuring my apron on her wonderful selvage blog.

Hi, just come to your blog from Jenny's. I love the great things you're doing but am utterly amazed that it's possible to actually buy selvedges!!
