selvages and sweet lovelies

My selvedge collection is growing. I sure wish I had kept all the ones that got tossed in the trash!
Would have enough for my bag by now….who knew I would need them one day! ha!!

Are these not sweet loveliness !?!?!
They are a group of fat qts from Windham Fabrics 1930’s Feed Sack line.
Bought them this past Sunday at LQS, Bella’s Fabrics.
I love the small cottage blocks Lurline made up and had a swap with!!
Won’t they be sweet in these 30’s prints!
Maybe a bit of rick rack here.. a wee bit of lace there.... ;-)


  1. Selvedge is all the rage! Your fabrics are delightful and will make the sweetest blocks.

    Happy Stitching...Ann :)

  2. I love 1930's fabric, and whatever you decide to do with it, the project will turn out lovely.

  3. What do you do with the selvedges?
    Oh, no, have I been throwing away something valuable? Yikes!

  4. I think about all the selvedges I've tossed in the garbage, and now so wish I had them back. I try to use every little scrap, that's why my sewing room looks like it does...
    You have been working on some beautiful gifts and it just makes me want to get started. Baby quilt first on the list. Love your feed sack fabrics.
    Keep Stitchen'

  5. I've recently started saving selvages too! Like the fabrics you bought this weekend...PRETTY!!
    Thanks for telling about Lurine's blog...like it.

  6. The sweet lovelies are something I have to have too, Lola.....great projects I am seeing. Your tablecloth bag is sweet!!! I just donated a huge bag full of *bags* and now I can start all over again...ha ha ha.


Luv hear'in from ya!!
