When Elena made these great pot-holders, her quilting friends in NC threatened to stop giving her their selvages unless she made some for them! They will just have to wait until Christmas...which isn't that far away if you are thinking of handmade gifts. Other cool ideas are: selvage pin-cushions (see Archives) and selvage pillows (see http://www.selvagequilts.com/ workshops).
Email photos of what you make so we can all be inspired.
P.S. Did you notice that (like Elvis and Oprah) Elena needs no last name when it comes to selvage quilting? Way to go Elena!
