Here is proof that I do not throw anything away!!

I finally finished quilting my black selvage quilt and decided to make a red zinger one. The red zinger looks like this:

 Here is the quilted one next:
and a close-up of the border:

By the way, I found a tutorial for making the red - or any other color- zinger on this site on Karen Griska's blog http://selvageblog.blogspot.com/2008/12/how-to-make-red-zinger.html

Wow! How wide are your selvage strips? I try to trim mine off as narrow as possible, but thinking your are bigger... I admire your thrifty-ness Smiley

Those are fabulous.  I've been using my selvages for other things, but I might have to start saving them for a quilt.

Great job!
