[Almost] Wordless Wednesday


[Added to my collection of Selvages]
 -- Wishing I'd always cut my selvages a little wider
 just to keep that edge of color ... and pattern --

And excellent Wednesday.  I hope your Wednesday was - or will be - too.

  1. Can't wait to see the finished product! Great idea to cut the selvage a little wider. I'm going to have to start doing that.

  5. I agree with you on the selvages! I've been wanting to make a string quilt with selvages and most of my are too narrow for standard piecing. Live and learn!

  11. I always cut into the pattern alongside the selvedge too..up to 2 inches sometimes..they make great 'hearts' and cushion covers and sew together more easily if you leave more pattern.

  14. Hello Rita ! Your work always inspires me! So wish I could stay home and play with fabric all day! The selevages ... I collect them from anyone who will give them up and mostly they only give me the very edge of the selvage! I when cutting mine allow two inches it is never missed! I try to tell others but they are not believer!! I hope you have a lovely day! Always wonderful to hear from you!!! Tammie
