Selvage Dots quilt top

Thanks to some friends on MQR and a few other nice ladies.....i got enough selvage dots to finish this top. it is 180  six inch blocks...set 12x15.  turned out to be 65" x 82"....good couch size.  i have been working on this for several months.

Rows are alternated...across and down.

I love that designers are now making their selvages a bit different.  this one has bats.....Halloween fabric.

Here are birds. and i didn't only use the dots.....i used the squares, too.

This one has ribbons

These might be my favorites....Texas. there are several blocks with Texas in them....4 blocks just in this pic.

Some of the selvages were colored, too. 

I'm not sure how it will be quilted....probably something circular. there are some thick seams there so will have to quilt it from the front of the machine so i can watch and not get stuck on a seam.

But this is a keeper.....i like it.

This is so fun! How wide do you cut the salvage pieces?

Becky, they are just about 1/4" past the dots. that is the part that gets covered by the next piece.
