My First Selvage Mini Quilt


My motto for this year is "Waste Not, Want Not". When I finished making my Sassafras quilt, I had these "little bits" leftover. I decided to put them to good use and make my first Selvage Mini Quilt.

As you can see, they are just the ends of my Cotton Blossom jelly roll strips. This is what I created with those "skinny" little pieces:




I enjoyed making this selvage quilt. I think that working with selvages creates a whole different look, one that I am sure I will try again.
I also finished my Sassafras quilt (finally)! It is in the dryer right now getting "quiltified". I will post pictures of my newest treasure tomorrow.
Until Next Time......Happy Quilting!

That's just soooo cute! I too have a bundles of saved selvages. Maybe I will make them into a mini quilt now that I have been inspired by your quilt!
