Eileen's Optical Illusion Selvage Top

My sister Eileen Lovett of Rhode Island is having a selvage quilt challenge with her friend Nancy Poor. This is the start of Eileen's quilt, the center. This "box" is about 18" tall. She'll add a 4" or 6" piano key border of selvages. I'll show you a better photo when it's finished, but I couldn't wait 'till then to show you this.

I'll feature photos of both quilts in October when they're both finished. Okay?

That is a really neat selvage idea!Just when I think I've seen everything you can sew with selvages, someone comes up with something I never would have imagined.

Wow! Your sister's selvage quilt center is fantastic! It looks absolutely perfect!

I was at a quilt show yesterday, there was a selvage quilt there. I wish I had taken a camera. By the way, that quilt was made by a man.
