Selvedge Quilts

I've been working on this one for awhile now.  I'm happy that it's finally starting to look like a finished quilt.  I'm handquilting it, but it's very hard to go through all the layers.

I have 2 weeks now, to enjoy some sewing and gardening

Oh, Annie, your selvedge quilt is just gorgeous! I am so impressed, and that you are hand quilting it is just that much more impressive. Gorgeous! And the other projects, too, are coming along nicely. Glad you'll be getting some "rest". :)

The selvedge quilt is amazing, but I like the colored blocks one very much: you have an eye for matching fabrics!
I wonder what you will come up with the appetizing wool.

Hi from AZ, USA [ex Aus]
I have been saving selvedges for years, making potholders [coveted by all who see them] & pin cushions but nothing larger. Now I have a huge bag of selvedges that are crying out to be used-I saw a spider web selvedge quilt using Bonnie Hunter's basic spider web tut that I think I might use.
Love selvedges!
