Out of Control

It's time now to do something about this...

My selvages are getting out of control, so I'm planning a project that I hope to have finished in time for my guild's exhibit in September.

I've taken the first step and organized them a bit...

We'll see what happens...

I am curious???

I intrigued and jealous at the same time.

I saw a salvage quilt at a show someplace and I think it was miniature log cabin blocks - one side of the blocks (the lighter side) was all made of salvage and the other was the darker colors - it was really cool - looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Whoa, that is some selvage stash! I've been saving mine, but I don't have as much as needed for a project yet. Guess I use too many pieces of scrap that have been de-selvaged ;-)

I can't wait to see what you do with them. I have a very very small portion of your size.

Hmmm...your selvage pile looks just as out of control as mine!

Madalene said...

So this is your out-of-the-box challenge--you're going to bring in piles of artistically arranged selvages! A real post-modern, "edgy" art piece.

That looks like a big project Anya! Can't wait to see what it is.

Jackie said...

Wow, that is one beautiful stash of selvages. I can't wait to see what you will make with them!

Vivian said...

My selvage supply is out of control too. I like your first step of organization. OK--now you're committed to a project. We'll be watching, looking forward to seeing what you choose.

Barb said...

I think I have selvage envy. I'm saving mine too but don't have anywhere near what you have... but that's okay I'm still not sure what to do with them yet.

Zoey said...

Holy Moly, Anya, you have a lot of selvages!

I just throw mine away. I think maybe I should start saving them. I am seeing all kinds of interesting projects for them in blogland.

Can't wait to see what you do with yours.
