Definition: The selvedge refers to the edge of fabric as it comes off the bolt. The selvedge is the edges of the fabric which has manufacturer information. This area of the fabric is usually a bound edge that does not fray.
Not only do I save the smallest snippets of fabric, I also save the selvedges. Check out the Quilts & Projects from Selvedges on Flickr for selvedge inspiration and ideas. Not too sure yet what I will do with my selvedges, but I will endeavour to expand my collection.
I have also received several inquiries regarding the spotty fabrics used in the Stashbuster Quilt.
These fabrics have been in my stash for quite some time, I use them often, and I am always on the lookout for good spots in vivid colors. My advice is when you find a really good spot, (no wishy washy faded background, and good size white spots) buy a yard to stash. You won't be sorry, you will find you can use them often.
As pictured from top to bottom the first two fabrics are by Piece O' Cake Designs from the "Sunday in the Park" range, and the last two fabrics are by Lecien who currently have an amazing selection of stripes and dots that would enhance any stash!
