    I have posted quite a few of my selvedge quilts in an album here on QB if you want some ideas as to what to use your selvedges on. I will be posting many more photos in the next few weeks? If you click on my name, go to my Profile and you should see the albums listed.

    Lynnie, your quilts are amazing.

    And thanks for this tutorial. I, too, wondered how it was done.

    Thank You. I have a whole box of selvages I was going to toss. What a great idea. Think I will try this.

    The lines are the key to a successful butterfly for me. I can't stand anything that is off kilter

    Liberty Star selvedge quilt

    My selvedge red star named "Liberty Star". I found the Pledge of Allegiance on fabric and added it to the left side binding. The selvedges were first sewn onto triangles, then trimmed.

    That is stunning. I wish I could make something like that. Favorite color is red. Great work.

    Thank you for this tutorial. I learned about a product I might find useful in my string sewing. Won't have to tear away the paper.
