Meet Barb from Houston

Barb Paliatsos of Houston, Texas made this colorful selvage bag for a "Green" challenge with her guild. Note the "Bag Lady" selvage at the top of the bag. I like the way the selvages make concentric diamonds too.

This is Barb's selvage stash of over 800 selvages! I think she's headed for a major selvage quilt!
Quilters who live in Houston are so lucky. Just drive downtown for the show. Easy as that. :)

Great job! Barb's bag was made using a pattern I designed. It's available from my website:
