I've been bogged down lately with sewing things I HAD TO sew rather than what I wanted to sew. I finally broke free and began a strippy selvage quilt. I had an old quilt back that had been removed from a tied quilt and it was on it's way to the trash can when inspiration hit. I washed that sorry old stained fabric, ironed it and cut it into 9" foundation squares. I cut 1 1/2" strips from a cute red and white checked fabric for my center strips and pieced selvages out from there. Any style, any color, as long as they were wide enough and long enough. I tried to use mostly selvages with words. Or dots. Fun, fun, fun! Here are the first four blocks trimmed (8 1/2") and laying side by side.
