New Selvage Quilt in Progress

 This is an idea that I've had for sooooo long ... here are the pieces that will be going together to make a new selvage quilt. 
 Hmmmmm ... part of the background ...
 Cornerstones perhaps, but I'm not 100% on these ...
 These still need trimming to be part of the inner design ...
And some border pieces.

Any guesses?  I really think this is just such an appropriate design/symbol to be made of selvages.  (Hint: You know how I like things with a double meaning.  Also, I think the first picture gives the best clue.)

  And thanks so much for all the congrats on the quilt show and on the two award nominations for The Town That Drowned.  It's been a lot of fun at my house lately and I really appreciate your support and encouragement.

Looks interesting, Riel! I like the blocks with green in the center! Only shape I can find is wonky houses? Looking forward to see what you have in your mind!

I think you are making the reduce, reuse, recycle arrows.

I see some pinwheelish shapes? I love those cornerstone possibilities! They inspire me!

I think Laura might have already made the proper guess. Although my second thought was log cabins. Whatever--it will be amazing!

I'm stumped, but intrigued!

Personally, I have no idea what you are making but it looks like some good guesses have been listed here. Can't wait to see what you are creating...
