The Tub Overfloweth!

My selvage suppliers have been so generous this year that I've started two selvage quilts!

This one might be called modern except for all those repro selvages! I'd feel a lot better about making this quilt design if it would only rain. (That's a hint!) Of course, its name might also refer to another activity which, I believe, is against the law!

And this one will definitely be traditional. I saw the inspiration quilt on an antique quilt site. I've never made one of these before and it may be a bit challenging to put together.

Any guesses what these quilts will be?

Until next time, Mayleen


  1. I've never worked with selveges before, but I do like the effect!! I also don't cut off my selvdges, I've heard that some people do before they start cutting their fabric up....something new to me.....

  2. What I DO know is that I love selvage quilts! You make me want to start one with selvages from my own overflowing tub.
