Selvage Edge Blocks

I think I've finally found a way to sew selvage edge's.
When I first started sewing and saving selvage edge's, I only cut off the edge, not any of the fabric.
I've since learned you have to take some of the fabric as well.
I've sewed them onto a paper block and went from there adding more edges.
I have to say, I'm quite pleased with the results.
I made 6 5" x 5" blocks in no time.


  1. They look great!! I too learned the hard way!! tee hee!

  2. Waste not, want not - I think your selvage blocks look great!!! Use every last bit of the fabric!!!

  3. I have used selvage edges to make a journal cover. They look great.

  4. I've never saved any selvage edges....your blocks look terrific. Now I see I should have saved some and done that, too. :(

  5. I like your colorful salvage edge blocks :D
