|Robot Mom sews is a fun funny gal that I (Heather) have had the privilege to hang out with a few times. She makes me laugh, and laughing and sewing are my two favorite things, instant friendship! Anyhow, she makes some awesome quilts! Here is one that I love. Be sure to check out Robot Mom Sews for more fun quilts, also, check out her Etsy shop for some cuteness...|
Yesterday I decided I was going to make a Giant Churn Dash quilt, entirely out of my selvages. I ♥ me some selvages. When I saw Ella's Cottage make one, I knew I had to dive right in. :) Be sure to check hers out, she also gave tips on how to make it!

I went out of my comfort zone and tried not to be too fussy on which selvages I chose. I just grabbed what fit. I used parchment paper for my template, because these blocks are biggies. Parchment paper worked really well to sew the selvages on.
I straight line quilted, rather organically. Didn't want it to be too fussy. As you can see, my lines aren't straight in most spots, so ahem, we call this 'organic' line quilting. ;)
I used some backing fabric I had for another project that didn't turn out. Ooops...oh well, at least this backing didn't go to waste.
