I'm not a fan of bandwagons.  I tend to avoid them as much as possible.  It's not that I don't admire popular projects or techniques, I've just always wanted to think of my creations as completely my own.  I know that it's not possible to not be influenced at all by other people's work.  It would be silly to think that every single idea I have springs from some completely new universe of creativity.  I just like to hold on to the idea that I am Original.  Just me.  So, despite how amazingly interesting and cool I think that selvedge quilts are I have refrained from joining in the strippy fun.  Until now.  What changed my mind? 

 These little guys.  


Aren't they adorable?  I've been dreaming of what wonderful things I can make with them.  I liberated them from the edges of the Little Apples line of fabric I used for Chickadee's teacher's quilt.  I have more waiting.  Hmm. Selvedges.  

Here are some of the quilts  {and not quilts} I found as inspiration.  Enjoy.
