My Selvedge-Along Progress

I am a bit overwhelmed with my selvedge collection,  so this Selvedge Along at Quilty Habit and Quilts of a Feather is great for helping me deal with some of my overabundance.
 And also, thanks to
 Jenn at A Quarter Inch from the Edge, for the inspiration and for the encouragement (even if she doesn't know she is doing it).  

So here is what I have sewn up so far in my quest to lighten my selvedge load.  I took my favourites and made a 14" square of fabric.  I could make a cushion, but I don't need any more cushions! I could make a wallhanging for my sewing room, or I could slice it up and create something very improvisational.  I already have lots of pouches. Maybe a sewing machine cover, not sure yet.  

 So, this 

Became this

It's not entirely Cotton and Steel selvedges, but mostly. I love how it matches the C&S floral print that you see behind.  That will factor in my project somehow.

Stop by and check out what others are doing with their selvedges


  1. You've certainly made an interestin length of 'fabric' with your selvedges. A sewing machine cover would be a lovely addition to your sewing nook. I can't believe you haven't made one, yet. (Me neither, but have made a pocketed pad to sit my machine upon.). Whatever you decide to do will be the perfect thing, I've no doubt!

  2. I love these new fabrics we're making. A sewing machine cover sounds perfect.

  3. Oooh... C & S have the loveliest of selvages. I haven't made anything yet with the ones I'm hoarding. I look forward to seeing what this turns into... no doubt it will be amazing!

    P.S. And you're right. I had no idea I was egging you on! But I'm glad I did!

  4. Oooooh, can't wait to see what wonderful creation you turn this into!

  5. Very nice. Hopefully inspiration will hit, and you'll know just what to make.

  6. The C and S selvages are the best, right? This is lovely! Thanks for linking up!

  7. Ooh looks great so far! Love the idea for a sewing machine cover! Thanks for linking up with the Selvage Along!
