    Hi Jaynie,
    I'm just wondering if you can wash this without it shrinking?
    This is really pretty and my goodness how many years did it take to collect all of these, are they all yours collection or did friends save for you too?
    It really is attractive~

    First of all..I'm in awe of the pile of selvages that you gathered...just HOW MANY quilts have you made and how long have you been saving??? The quilt looks great...I just love those..although I have to admit that I do save the selvages and give them away..

    Love your studio too...looks like a dream to me!

    That's beautiful! And hey, if you have any extra selvages, PLEASE send them my way! :wink: I've been wanting to make one of these, but I just have a small ziploc baggie of them. :(

    Well quilters....to answer some of your questions:
    My friend and I have been saving selvages for about 8-9 years, just the two of us.
    I would say, between the two of us we have probably made around 75 quilts in the past 10 yrs. I do almost all the machine quilting for both of us.
    That pile of selvages on the table was only about half of what we have saved.
    I am not sure about the shrinkage when its is washed, but I am hoping that it will be minimal since it is string pieced onto fabric & I will quilt it fairly close.
    And for "borntoquilt"...the red/wht/blk blocks on the design wall were fussy cut hearts machinenappliqued onto fussy cut blocks. I then did a machine blanket stitch around the hearts. I intended to have it done for valentines day...but life happens and the quilt didn't. So maybe next year. I will post some closeup pics of those blocks for you.
    Thanks for the comments.
    Stay tuned for more pics of a couple of other WIPs

    Your quilt made up of selvages is seriously one of the most beautiful quilts I've ever seen. I hate to 'waste' anything & here you've used pieces most people toss out. LOVE IT!!!
