Beautiful pillow. I don't remember how I found your blog, but now I have visions of something made from selvages in my future. I like to see the items you post to compare what the look of using less and/or more fabric with the selvage. This pillow is a great example of using more fabric. Thanks!

The pillow is darling, I added it to my 'someday' list of projects to do.

LOVE the pillow! Thanks for entering me in the drawing!!!

Maxine said...

How generous of you!

Cindy said...

Just finding Karen's blog in the last few weeks has me collecting selvages now. I look forward to making my first selvage project, the problem is having patience to collect enough selvages to make a bigger project like a pillow.

I'll start small - to use the selvages I've collected thus far.

spinningstar said...

I have started collecting selvages to do my first project....

Found a Moda scrap bag at a quilt show and bought it. I think you mentioned these in a previous post. I ended up with 16 edges with the printing info (out of 42 strips). The other strips are also selvages, but without the printing. I still am thinking that I will use them in the project

But, I also got 11 2" strips and 32 2.5" strips (33" long). Not bad for $10.

But, I sure could use the pillow for inspiration!

Hi Karen,
I love all the creative things you've done with selvage. I will post a picture on my blog of the one thing I've done with selvage. It involved kniting with it.

Salvages are all the rage lately! Seems I see things made with them nearly everyday! I saw a wallet that really caught my eye. The setting on the pillow is very appealing too.
