It took me awhile to get into the selvedge sewing trend. I love to see the projects that people come up with, but simple selvedge piecing just didn’t appeal to me…until I realized that I could incorporate selvedges into a bigger pieced design!
Now that I’ve started working with selvedges, I’m finding it really hard to throw away even the tiniest pieces of fabric. Which is why I’ve made a FOURTH Hope Valley pillow! It’s not my favorite, but I think that it’s a nice combination of scrap, improv piecing and the more structured quilting that is my comfort zone. I really did use up just about every scrap of Hope Valley that I had, which is a good feeling.
