Sewing Selvages again...


I don't know if it was because of these pincushions I made a couple of weeks ago...


Or if it was because of the mug rugs I stitched...


But I was in the mood to sew with some more selvages last weekend. So I made a few or 20 of these blocks. They are very satisfying to sew and kind of 'mindless' so I don't have to think too hard. I really enjoy choosing the selvages and remembering the fabrics and which quilts I used them in. I also enjoy thinking about the sweet friends who have given me some of these. Or wondering where the mutant ninja turtle selvage came from? LOL I'm saving that one for a special block for sure!

And because I know Martha is going to ask...NO, I have no idea how many I'm going to make or what size quilt this will be! I'm just sewing to sew and I'll figure out the details later. 

Don't forget that the giveaway is still open in the post below!

Enjoy every stitch,
Diane

  1. Sometimes that is the best way to sew, with no direction or plan. It makes it really fun!

  2. Your previous post inspired me to make a few pincushions and mug rugs too! They were so much fun ! Now I have begun saving all selvages for other cute projects. Thank you for the ideas.

  6. Very fun! I know I am crazy, but I have never saved my selvages. I just sort of drew a line in the sand and said I can't do everything! Every now and then I regret it (looking at some of the fun selvage projects) but then I forget about it again till the next time I see something interesting made with them.:)
