I've been digging through my selvage bin over the last few weeks, steadily trying to both organize and tidy up my selvages, which I've been collecting in a giant Tupperware container in my sewing room closet pretty much since I started sewing. For the first few years, I was real haphazard about my selvage saving, but about two years ago, I really fell in love with string piecing and saw loads of selvage projects that I adored, so I actively started saving my selvages at that point.
It was like looking through an old yearbook, sorting through these selvages and seeing all sorts of fabric collections that I haven't used or thought about in eons, and discovering some serious finds in my selvage bin, like some original Flea Market Fancy selvages (which are adorable) and I decided that my absolute favorite selvage that I own at the moment is this one right here from Rashida Coleman-Hale's Moonlit collection for Cotton + Steel. I adore all the Cotton + Steel selvages, but I especially love Rashida's handwriting, so this one is a current fave :)
What am I doing with these guys? Well, I'm working on a project for another larger project that I can't share much about at the moment, but here's what I can say - it's going to be a quilt, and yes, there will be a pattern. And yes, there will be more sneak peeks as I start to get these little pieces together. And I can hardly wait!
