Selvages need love, too!

Selvages need love, too!

Have you made a project with selvages yet?  Are you saving up your fabric selvages?

Kathy Ritter has two selvage projects in the works, and they are inspiring!

Unfinished, but I’m liking it so far!

Even better, some manufacturers have caught on, and are making selvages that want to be on view.

I had some fun the other day in the store hunting down a sample of selvage cuteness.  It seems like Robert Kaufman has the most consistent use of thematic selvages.

Well, what are you waiting for?  A quick Pinterest search reveals that there are plenty of ways to use this bounty of fabric cast-offs.  Come show us your projects!

 

Just Hanging Around…Quilts from Books, by Staff

Friday, July 19th, 2013

 To celebrate mid-Summer (what’s a Dog-Day, anyway?) here are snapshots of three amazing quilts that are hanging in the Store — right now. We secretly think they might be even nicer than the original quilts on which they are based… but come see and let us know what you think. Apologies for the quality of the photos, taken with an iPhone today.
