Jen Duncan's Fast Blue Zinger

Jen Duncan had to have a selvage quilt yesterday! (She was in a hurry.) So necessity being the mother of invention, she came up with some ways to make a lightning-fast Blue Zinger! Take a look at the photos on her blog: http://www.jenduncan.typepad.com/ Her post is dated May 12th. You will really like her blog.

Doesn't she have the best selvages? Jen, where do you find those fabrics?

Thanks for putting this out in front of all your peeps Karen. I can't tell you what a time-saver it is and wanted as many people as possible to consider this approach. A lot of my selvages are japanese imports...I think I'm addicted to them! I keep buying them, but so far only use the selvages :-) Try superbuzzy.com and reprodepot.com to start. But don't say I didn't warn ya!

Pretty! You all have inspired me to start saving selvages. I have a question - the writing is very close to the edge, how do you sew it to it's neighbor without covering part of the words? I assume you use the teeniest seam allowance possible.

These selvages that you all are using for a ba-zillion creations just amazes me. That quilt is gorgeous.

Love the quilt and am now starting to save selvages!! Not sure what I'll make with them, but I have to collect some too!
