    Selvage spools

    My Selvage Spools flimsy finally finished. Spools and borders are selvages. Sorry for the bad pics but no design wall to put it on right now. Now to decide how to quilt it.

    Adorable. I keep wanting to save my selvages for such a project but when I start cutting fabric I just can't justify to myself, when I would ever actually use them.

    Now, after seeing your creation, I will just have to save them.
