Do you see Elvis on the far right-hand edge? And I see a selvage, front and center! Nellie uses scraps from her projects (and her friend's scraps) to create these amazing quilts.

Janet won a package of selvages from me a while back and she used some for this, her second selvage project. Her first project was a postcard for her sister, made from the selvages of old fabric their mother had before she died 8 years ago. Isn't that a sweet idea? Now Janet's planning her next selvage project, a quilt. I can't wait to see it.
Sometimes when I tell people I graduated from U Conn, they say "Way up there? Wasn't it cold?" "Not too bad," I say. "You get used to it." Haha. Yeah, I'm pretty rugged.
Now she's making another selvage quilt to enter in a show with her other guild. Go JoAnne!

Karen Jones of New Zealand made this selvage bra/tote bag for a guild challenge. We see many unique selvage items on this blog, but this is the first selvage bra! Note the selvages were chosen for their appropriate messages.
Karen won First Prize at the Capital Quilters Exhibition in Wellington! Congratulation, Karen!

If you have some baby quilts to make this summer, you're sure to find some good ideas to get you started. I find that it always recharges my battery to browse and study the clever quilts that these quilters come up with. So, I say take a look at this issue. It could be the start of some summer fun!

This is a brand new cyber venue which not only features quilting Exhibits, but it's a place where you can have your own Gallery to feature your quilts. You'll also find free online Workshops, a Big Quilt Glossary for newbies, and there's a Quilt Challenge going on already.
When you have your own Gallery, you log in and enter as many quilt photos and as much text as you like. It's very user friendly. It may energize your creative journey to see all your quilts in one place. Friends and relatives can easily view them too. You may find that it draws traffic to your blog, website, Etsy or eBay sites. You may indicate if a quilt is available for sale. Include your email so people can contact you. This elegant worldwide quilt show is open 24/7. Free to visit; $4.95/month via PayPal to have a Gallery.
So I invite you to get a big cup of coffee or tea, and enjoy your first of many visits to the Online Quilt Museum: http://www.onlinequiltmuseum.com/. For the companion newspage and Quilter's Lounge visit: http://www.quiltersmuse.blogspot.com/.
Comment here or in the Lounge. I can't wait to hear what you think!

I love her blog, and I bought her e-book. I had to smile when I read that she doesn't have the time or inclination to make stuff with selvages. (Of course, Lizzy.) She says, "It's not gonna happen." (Right. We hear you.) Then she goes on to describe the clever way she made this and how much fun it was to make. Just sewing for fun. Hey, that's great Lizzy! :)
But if you do make something else, send us a photo.
Thank you to Viki in Australia who alerted me to this great project.
