My Sister's Selvage Quilt from the 1960's

My sister Lynne Jakubauskas of Vermont made this quilt in the 1960's when she was a little kid in grammar school. I think she'd never heard of not using the selvages, and she just wanted to get a lot of squares out of her scraps. And these quilts are still in use at her house. That says something! So much for the idea that selvages would get all twisty and act different from the rest of the fabric.

And I'm cutting up my selvages for a strip quilt? Piffle. I should use them in squares.
