I felt compelled to do something with the selvages from my Orange Sherbet quilt this weekend. Mostly because I had 5 bobbins loaded with thread before I got too intimidated to quilt it myself.
So what’s a girl to do?
Use one of the fun stitches on her machine and power sew!
But now I’m stuck on what to do with this – I foundation pieced onto some muslin, and the finished size is 15×16. I was initially thinking pillow, but don’t know where I would put it. My living room furniture is blue, so this will clash horribly – plus I have the black & cream going as accent colors in there anyway… And I’ve already demonstrated that these colors clash in our bedroom. (Sidebar: Really need to become grown-ups and get a bed frame.) The guest bedroom is Americana, so these colors won’t work there either.
So I’m not sure what to do with this… If I ever had my own craft room, I would just hang it up and call it a mini quilt. So maybe I just put it aside for now? Any other suggestions?
Seriously, don’t you just love the selvage on the Lightning Bugs fabric? SO MUCH FUN!! (click the picture twice to big-ify) I’ve been saving the selvages when cutting my Heather Ross fabrics – does anyone want them?? This was a fun lil project, but I don’t see too many more selvage projects in my future!
