    Very nice use of these. I usually toss mine since I was getting too much clutter.

    I have found that they need to be about an inch wide and not much less than 3/4" to get a good view of the the fabric or cute color dots. I overlap the finished edge about 1\4" over the cut edge of the one below it. I have also used cheap muslin as a foundation for the blocks. It helps with stretch on the bias too.

    Nice!! Great use of "scraps". Now I need to stop throwing mine out.

    I saw a bookcase quilt where all the "books" were selveges. Pretty cool, they looked like magazines.

    Gotta find a box, tote, bucket or bag to start stuffing them in.....

    If you're new at saving selvedges remember to cut big! I make sure to have at least a half inch to an inch above the actual selvedge so when I use it I don't lose the pretty part in the seam. You might have to cut them even narrower when you go to use them but you want to preserve the decorative part of the selvedge as much as possible.

    Very nice table runner. I don't save selvages unless I want to know the name/designer of the fabric. Otherwise they get pitched.
