Selvage Coins

My selvage coin quilt top is all together! At first I thought I would use a bright pink for the background fabric and it did look nice, but then the color consultant at my local quilt shop directed me to this green. Even though it doesn't look it in the photo (the lighting isn't the greatest here this morning) the green is perfect! I think I will do some simple straight line quilting, add a binding and call it done!

Very nice Susan. Did you foundation piece the selvages or just sew them together?

This is neat, I've never done selvages or coins, but I'm collecting.

Happy Mother's Day, Susan!

I like your selvage quilt - I really love selvages.

I've been collecting selvages, but don't have near enough for a project. Are all those selvages from your stash? It's a wonderful project! Looking forward to seeing it completed.

It's great and I think it would have suited a lot of colours.
