    My best quilting friend & I have been saving selvages for years. We recently got together for a few days of fabric, fun, food & wine!!!(hehehe)
    Here is what I made with the selvages, then I machine quilted it on my Gammill Premier Plus. I didn't buy anything new for this quilt, I already had the thread, the backing, the binding & the batting. It was lots of fun to do. (and a personal challenge to use only what I already had)

    This is the back. I wished I had enough of the colorful print for the whole back, but I made do with what I had.

    Wow what a neat idea. And to think all this time I have been throwing them away! It looks great. It really has a lot of "motion".

    I can't believe I've been throwing out selvages all this time. Time to start saving them, I suppose :) I save just about everything else it seems :) You know...just in case (lol)

    WOW, your quilt is just outstanding!

    And it tells me a lot about you.....

    You are one patient quilter to use all those tiny scraps of fabric!
    I admire your persistence!
