    Book Shelf Quilt

    I've seen many quilts made to look like book shelves. I've started collecting my selvedges to make one. My dd wants to see what it'll look like, but I can't find a picture. Does anybody have a picture of one? Or a link?

    Thanks
    Dorian

    WoW! I never knew book shelf quilts were so popular and some very unique. Thank you Ranger.
    I saw one on this board that used the white printed salvages.

    I love this site. Thanks. Never knew that selvages could be used so many different ways. Hate to think of the ones that got away.
