    quilted placematts with some selvages and strings

    These were made using some selvages I paper pieced then cut into triangles. It was a lot of fun to do the paper piecing but not so much fun to get the paper off, so don't know what I'm going to do with about 80 paper piece triangles.
    Any way, I attached these on to my quilting frame and was able to quilt them there.

    This is the pile of triangle I made.

    Those are great! I started saving selveges but I cut them too narrow so they're really not useful. You did a great job!

    I've gotten a lot given to me that were really narrow. I always cut about 1-1/2 inches when I trim the selvages, I like to have the color part too.
