    Wow! I never thought about using selvages but hated wasting them because some of them measure at least 1/2 " and we pay for that material, I have used them to tie bundles of 5', 7" etc of fabrics. You're idea is much better!! Thanks

    Great ideas. Have you seen paper piecing done on rolls of adding machine or cash register tape.

    I keep intending to save my selvages because I really like projects like this, but I get so wrapped up in cutting out my quilts that I totally forget about it! I especially like the little baskets!
