Scrappy Selvages + a winner!

Happy Tuesday morning everyone!  I had the chance to take a mini-vacation of sorts this past weekend and it was so nice!  One of my nephews was getting married  and due to school and work stuff, my kids and husband were not able to come with me.  So my sister and I flew together up to Washington for a few, short, delightful days.  I’m back now, feeling quite rested and ready to survive what’s left of winter.

So… since finishing my selvage pillow I’ve been thinking about what selvage project I’d like to do next!  I love the look of the selvage quilts-

like this one (called Web of Whimsy from Quilt Magazine June/July 2013 issue)

but I know I just don’t have time for another large project right now.

I do love this Market Tote bag pattern from Jodi from A Pleasant Home.  (Click the photo to purchase the pattern.)  And this definitely seems more doable for me right now.

Meanwhile, I keeping adding to my Selvages Pinterest Board.  I know I’ll never have the time to tackle all of these awesome ideas, but it’s still fun to dream, right?

And now for the winner of the box of selvages (plus a few extras that I’ll throw in)……

Congratulations Allison!  I’ve sent you an email.  And thank you to all who commented – it was fun to read how everyone spent their Valentine’s Day!


  1. I gave a large bag of selvages to a fellow blog reader, knowing I probably will never get to using them. But, now I've collected almost an entirely new bag. Someday I hope to put them to good use!

  2. Selvedges are so fun! Love all the things I've seen made from them
