Block of the Month

Barbara already has her BOM put together!

Wendy gave us an informative program on Selvedges.

Selvedge apron... Wendy says it is good to cut selvedge strips 1 to 1 1/2 inches wide,,, and you can cut them larger.

Kids apron

Selvedge strips added to a mesh bag.

Wendy says that a decorative stitch to sew the selvedge down goes faster than a straight stitch. It also looks good on the white selvedge.
