Reviews

"If you don't already have a selvedge stash, you will want to beg, buy or borrow from others so that you can make the amazing patterns in this book." Down Under Quilts, Australia
 
"Remember when we used to trim off selvages and thrown them away? Not anymore! Quilts and other projects made entirely with or simply incorporating selvages are a popular trend, it's easy to see why." Modern Quilts Unlimited
 
"There is such satisfaction to make something from nothing—normally selvages are
wasted! I have been lured into this vortex ..." Canadian Quilter
 
"If you were like me and have yet to discover the fun of saving and making with selvages, you'll find Riel's book is an excellent resource. She covers everything from cutting (just how much printed fabric should you cut off with your selvage edge, anyway?) to sorting, planning, measuring, pressing, sewing and ultimately creating projects efficiently with your selvages.  You'll also find tips on how to label, quilt and care for your selvage projects." Krista Hennebury, Author of Make it, Take It
