Sneak Peek

 Just a sneak peek at my secret selvage project which will be revealed next week. These photos should give you some ideas as to what it is.

Its done and guess what? I still have some selvages left over!

Only one more label to sew onto a wall hanging for the quilt show and my quilts will be ready. The show is next week so I doubt there will be much stitching done for a few days. In my next note, I'll have some pictures of show quilts and reveal the secret selvage project to you!

Until next time, Mayleen

The end is near!

I feel a bit like saying, "Help, I've gotten stuck stitching selvage projects and I can't stop!"
The end is drawing near, though, because these are almost all of the selvages I have left. For this project, I'll probably need all of these and maybe more.

I'm working on a "secret project". Its secret because if it turns out badly, no one will know.

Besides the selvages, the above is also important.

If it turns out, it will be shown during my Selvage Quilting demo at our quilt guild's quilt show on Friday the 27th. at 1:30. Hope you can make it or I might just be talking to a bunch of empty chairs!

Until next time, Mayleen
