May Britt's Little Selvage Quilts

These two little selvage quilts were made by May Britt of Norway. Aren't they creative? I especially like her stems and use of buttons. Also notice her use of fabrics with words incorporated in them, and words sewn into the backgrounds too. The quilt above has ribbon with little blue flowers, and the quilt below has a row of lace (touching the stem). Take a close look at the quilting on the flower below; isn't that clever?

The quilt in the top photo was exchanged with another quilter, and the one in the bottom photo was a challenge with two friends, Hanne and Bente. May's quilting friends are so lucky.
