    I have heard about using selvages for quilt making, but I have not seen any photos yet that shows what these quilts look like. Do any of you have any quilts you can show me? It interests me so I thought I would ask to see what you could tell me about these quilts. Thanks

    No quilts, it takes forever to collect enough, but I did make a little zippered bag for when I went into hospital with some hand sewing.
