I just received the nicest gifts from Joan of Smyrna, Georgia. She made a selvge cover for this quilter's notebook ("needlework companion"/idea book) and a selvagey bookmark. Aren't they beautiful? Thank you, Joan!
The little button closure is covered by this happy face resting on two yoyo-like flowers. It makes my heart smile :-) Also notice the red zig-zag stitching along the selvage edges. A nice touch.
A selvage near the happy face says "Blank Quilting." This one always makes me chuckle. It's like "flavorless chocolate." What's the point? Lol. Perfect, I like that one. Another good selvage is the "Girlfriends" below. I hope fabric manufacturers will give us more selvages with "useable" words on them, like "Happy Birthday," or phrases, quotes, lyrics, names, places...anything.
