Selvage Giveaway...


You know, like any good hoarder quilter, I have way too much stuff in my stash.  I need to clear some room from my storage cabinet so I've decided to part with my selvage collection.  This is the back story...

Last summer I got the book Quilts from the Selvage Edge (which I am also including in the giveaway).  I was so inspired that I went through my entire stash and cut off the selvages from all my fabric, including about an inch of the fabric as well.  This was helpful because I ended up donating a ton of older fabric to a local high school Home Ec. teacher.  Anyhow, I fully intended to make a really awesome selvage quilt, or accessories, or something like that.  But it didn't happen, and I'm doubting that it will ever happen, so I figured someone out there might have some extra motivation but be lacking the necessary selvages.

To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment.  I'll pick the winner on Friday and mail out a big box of selvages to some lucky reader!!!  Good luck!

Oh, how I hate to be the first one! But this is like a dream come true...I just love selvages and just can't seem to get enough to finish the projects I have. I can't tell you how much I would love to win this great giveaway. Thank you.

Look at that beautiful stash of selvages! I've been saving mine for almost a year now, waiting until I have enough for some projects. If I win, this will get me cranking! Thanks for offering!

I'm not certain whether you want to post to Australia if I was lucky enough to win - but who knows!
Would love to have enough selvages to make something. One thing I do with mine is include them as a label on the reverse of my quilts.
Thanks for the chance to win.

I would love to receive your selvages. I'm so tempted to make an entire quilt out of them... and I'm sure I would if I had more! Thanks for the chance!

A while back I made a fabulous tote bag from selvedges and everywhere I take it people love it. I have been saving more for some time now and would be just thrilled to add yours to my collection if I was so lucky xx

Oooh, I'd love to win some selvedges - I've always wanted to make something with them, but the thought of hoarding them until I had enough just boggled my mind - I would probably lose them a dozen times over! Thanks for the chance!

I never thought to make something from the salvages! What a neat idea! Thanks for the chance.

I think I am just crazy enough to think that this was a great idea & since you're including the book too! Why not!! & it's not buying fabric. My New Year's resolution was not to buy fabric until I finish 10 other projects I have 4 done and working on #5.....so PLEASE count my in! Sandra

Shannon said...

So awesome!! I would love to make a quilt using your book and selvages. Thank you for offering them up in a give away.
