Jacqui's Fancy Stitches

Jacqui of Treadle Quilts in Canada is saving Kaffe fabrics for an orange peel quilt that she plans to make. In the meantime, she used the selvages to make another thread-catcher to hang near her sewing machine. Take a look at the fancy machine stitches Jacqui used to attach the selvages. It looks like she used variegated thread too. What a nice touch.

I just love this! And you can enjoy it every time you sew!

No!!! I've been throwing my selvage away! I wish I'd discovered this blog sooner, I'm a bookbinder and use quilting fabric to cover my books. I always end up with heaps, am so inspired to make one of these now :)
