Selvage Edge Quilt Start

This is three blocks and the start of a selvage edge block quilt.  These are fun to do and go really fast.  I have a huge box of selvage edges thanks to the Sit n Sew group from Tuesdays----thanks everyone!  It's going to take awhile to make that box grow smaller!  The pattern is from the book "Quilts from the Selvage Edge" by Karen Griska. Lots of neat patterns in there.  I may have to try another one, too.

I finished another quilt, too, but have to wait until my quilt holder is feeling better for him to hold it because it is a big one.  He has some sort of summer virus and it is dragging him down.  Also need to quilt another one for Project Linus called Salad Bar.  It is a Modern Quilt and a pattern from Debi.  It's been too hot to quilt and have a hot quilt on your lap!  Maybe some early morning I can work on that.  Too hot even with the A/C running!  105 degrees yesterday.  Very oppressive!  But I can still piece quilts together and that is what I've been doing.  Hurrah for that!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!
