The Joy of Arranging Selvages

One of the most satisfying aspects of selvage quilt making is inserting those little images that are printed near the selvage edge. They add sparkle and surprise. Some of my favorite examples are shown above. It's like hiding Easter eggs! I love to witness people discovering these little surprises.

If the image you like isn't printed close to the selvage, simply cut a strip and fold over one long edge so that it acts like a bound edge. It will look just like a selvage. :)
