    Mini Selvage Quilt

    A finished weekend project. I'm making mini quilts to fill a wall in my house. I've been collecting selvages for quite a while and haven't done much with them. I wanted a wallhanging made with them and saw this idea on Pinterest.

    great use of selvages. I need to look to see how many I have now, great design
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Love your design. Good job of piecing and quilting. I make a lot of things with selvages but hadn't seen this pattern before.

    Your mini quilt is beautiful! How much of the edge did you cut off? I goofed and cut just to the edge of the selvedge. I don't think thats far enough is it?

    I like to leave at least 3/4 to 1 inch of the main fabric with my selvages, like that little bit of extra color.

    That is very attractive. I love how the solids play off the selvages. Great design.
