Dianne's Selvage Cards

Dianne Cahill of Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia has been making these little selvage gift tags to go with fat quarters that she gives to her sewing group friends. Are quilters thoughtful and generouos people, or what?

Her friends bring her their selvages, so Dianne will probably be making a big quilt soon!

Isn't it funny that we always thought using a selvage in a quilt would lead to something terrible, like shrinking and twisting? But they are fine, even after washing. You can use them in a utility quilt if you want, and it will last a long long time even with lots of machine washing and drying.
