Happy Holidays!

I made this tree quilt early in 2010. It is made in a quilt-as-you-go method using various selvage edges - you know, those yards and yards of fabrics that you've tossed in the trash? Yep, I've saved 'em for a couple of years now, and this is the first project that I created using them.

I was inspired by Kay Rindal, a wonderful friend of mine, who is also a member of our quilt guild. She began collecting selvages and sorting them by various categories: color, with and without words, those that have fun phrases and with interesting symbols on them instead of just numbered circles, etc. She created some great blocks and shared them with us at our meeting. Right then and there, I knew I wanted to do this.

Not wanting to take her idea, I just happened
to think of lines of varying length, and VOILA!
A tree appeared in my mind's eye. 

I hope you will enjoy this little project and that you'll
send new ideas about selvage edge creations of your own!
Have a great weekend!
