"Hello, I'd Like 5 Pounds of Selvages, Please"

That's what Elena McDowell got when she went to her local quilt shop in Raleigh, NC recently! Her friend Cathy who is also the owner of Wish Upon a Quilt, makes up lots of kits (and layer cakes - those are 10" squares of fabric collections) and she and her staff have been saving the selvages for Elena for several months. Can you imagine? Oh! It's nice to have friends in high places!

Oh to have friends is a good thing. Ask and you shall receive. But be careful or you may get more than you bargain for.
