Selvage Along

Selvage Along

Have you heard that Renee @Quilts of a Feather and Jess @Quilty Habit are hosting a fun Selvage Along this summer? This week, they are hosting a link up to show off your selvage storage and / or collection, and I had to laugh at my meager offering:


I currently have 2 selvages in my stash. I did recently work on a fun secret project that used up selvages in the project, and I will be featuring the selvage binding technique I used on August 17th!

I am excited to get more ideas and inspiration to push me into saving up my selvages, and I hope you join in, too!

    That’s 2 more selvages than I have! But will be interesting to see all the ideas everyone comes up with. Congratulations on your milestones!

    I don’t keep mine either but I so admire the projects that come from them! Congrats on the stats! I’m not surprised people want to follow your quilty works!

    I throw my selvages out but have been seeing this for a while but will start to save them. Can you tell us the ‘rules’ for cutting off the selvage? L

  4. Jasmine says:

    You have one more selvage than me. I only kept it because it had my name on it. 🙂 And congrats on all the followers. That is amazing, but not surprising.

    Congrats on your milestones! You’ve put a lot of hard work into growing your blog.

  6. Renee says:

    At least you have a good excuse for having only two!

  7. You’ve got more than me. I don’t save them and don’t feel inclined to use them. Congrats again on your 1K following!

  8. I have tons of selvedges, but haven’t found a project yet. I’m hoping to get some inspiration from the blog hop.

    Thanks for sharing this. I was just commenting on a post that I think I have been underestimating the usefulness of selvages. Maybe I should not be so quick to toss these little fellows away.

  10. I wanted to join in and planned to join in, but I will be travelling all of September. Let’s see how I go.

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
