...garbage goes high class!

I'm collecting Kaffe Fasset fabric to make an Indian Orange Peel quilt by Karen Stone in November. A group of us from our local quilt guild are going to take a class. I washed and pressed all the lovely colors and trimmed the selvages off. I decided to make a special Handy Snippet catcher out of these lovely selvages :-). How's that for a high class way of collecting garage eh? Here are the selvages sewn onto a foundation:

The thread catcher inside and pin cushion:
The outside:
The finished project!

I need to make a high class garbage container too! It is next on my list once I finish my current selvage project. Kaffe Fasset would be proud to use your garbage container!

VERY High Class!! Fantastic job. Garbage containers never looked so good.

Very clever - what a great use of those selvages we all used to throw away.
