Selvage inspiration

After showing my selvage block in the previous post I got another tips about bloggers that use selvages:

Jodie at RicRac of course.

Karen Griska at Selvage blog. WOW....there was a lot of great ideas here.

And this blog Treefall design have selvage pincushions at her blog header.

Anyone else???

Saying for today:

Wear natural fibers, hug your cat.

Hi, thanks for the lovely design you did for the stitchers angel swap. I have just printed it out and plan to start it tomorrow.
I will send you a picture of my finished bag.

I've not used selvages - just toss them - but now there is an entire book on sewing with selvages! It's called "Quilts fromt he Selvage Edge". written by Karen Griska. Your piece is similar to what is on the cover. I've not seen the book - but what a great idea! Here is a link - I hope blogger won't disallow it!

If you can't get the link to work just go to a book website and search for the title.

I have been saving my selvages but have not figured out what to do with them. I will check out the other ideas. Thanks.

Hi May, I love to read your blog! You are always full of ideas! English is a second language for me too, so I know how challenging is sometimes to say what you think but your English is perfect. I am from Bulgaria but live in USA now and started to quilt few years ago but I have been sewing clothes much longer. Quilting is addictive. Keep blogging.......
