Selvedging Along

I will be playing with selvedges along with Quilty Habit and Quilts of a Feather. To start, they've asked us to show how we store our selvedges. Mine are all in this big lined basket in a jumbled mess. I'm in awe of the quilters who have their selvedges stored by color, folded neatly in ziplock baggies.


Earlier this year, I made this selvedge log cabin wall hanging in response to the RIMQG log cabin challenge.


I had a few extra blocks which became a giant pillow.


My first selvedge project was this spiderweb wall hanging made in 2013.


 I had so much fun quilting this one!


 I will be teaching a class called "Salvaging your Selvedges" in September. This table runner is my class sample of a sampler table runner.


I'm ready to play! Maybe I'll start by sorting my selvedges by color like the cool kids.

Love your selvedge projects. I must admit I've never thought of using mine. I did make a block for a Bee using just selvedges. I enjoyed that but could never make a full quilt
