A Selvage Curiousity!


Selvage quilter Kathy Hart keeps a keen eye out when she's dealing with selvages! You know how we say that the maximum number of color windows on a fabric is 18? (That's how you know if you're a selvage nut, and now you all know it and are...well, back to the story). Kathy saw that this fabric seemed to have 24 color windows, but wait! There are six blank circles between 9 and 16, so we're back to 18!

Don't you just love a mystery? I will try to get to the bottom of this pressing question and report back to you. How many of us have been sewing merrily along using Moda's Funky Monkey fabric, not realizing that there was something strange going on! Thanks, Kathy!

That is an odd one. Can't wait to find out the why on that one.

Maybe those numbers are left out like the 13th floor is left out on hotels... superstition! ;)

do u think fabric designers will extend their designs onto the selvages because they know everyone is collecting them now?
