More selvage news...

Well I got a little farther on my selvage adventure last night. The big piece is actually folded in half, a pocket made and ready to put on and the handles done. So it shouldn't take me long to finish today. I haven't decided if I should quilt it or not. Hopefully I will have another pic later.

It's kind of fun and interesting to see what this will look like, but very time-consuming sewing all the selvages together. Sort of like string-piecing, but with very small strips. One of the most interesting things to me is all those colored dots in the selvage lining up in the rows.

Looks fabulous already.
I think I saw a table runner somewhere made with selvages,.
Looking forward to seeing your finished product Jean.

I would not have thought something made with selvage would be so pretty!
