a quick selvage project

Okay, so two of my favorite quilting trends right now are selvages and 'wonky quilts'. I decided to put the two together and came up with this...It's just a hot pad, sorry if I got you excited! I constructed it just like a log cabin block, except I used scrap selvages and uneven angles. It turned out pretty fun. I made it for my mom's friend who has generously been saving her selvages for me, as a little thank you.

My interest (obsession) in selvages started last year when I came across this post on the Moda Bake Shop Blog; it kept growing when I started following the Selvage Blog. I actually have a selvage quilt in progress, you can check it out here! I'd say I owe my 'wonky' obsession to Elizabeth Hartman from the Oh! Fransson blog. I love her work. She's a quilt rockstar as far as I am concerned!

If you want to jump on the selvage train, check out the selvage blog I mentioned above. I suggest starting with a small project, like a hot pad!
