Awesome Reminders from the Archives!

Hello gorgeous quilters!

I was looking back at my blog post "A Few Tips on Free Motion Quilting - Round Robin Sampler" to jog my memory on how to stitch leaves on my new Canadiana Improv Quilt that I am working on.

As I was looking at this particular post it reminded me that I have many wonderful posts that some of my newer followers would be interested in.   Here is a list of some of my faves for your info and enjoyment!

Always, thank you for reading!   💝Melanie

The selvages on fabrics are so cute that I thought they would make great tags for quilts! 

As part of a quilt label it is recommended to mention the fabrics.  
Here is a great way to do just that.  
You can even add numerous tags side-by-side if you desire.  

Here is the process. 

Cut the selvages off of both sides of your feature fabric, 
cutting the patterned selvage 1/4" wider than the label selvage. 

Sew the raw edges of one pattern selvage and one label selvage rights sides together.  

Press open. 

Press in half, keeping the selvage edges even.  

Top stitch the selvage edge together.  

Trim to size.  

Fold in half and pin together. 

Sew into the binding of your quilt.  

I just love this 💚 and hope you do too!
