    Mini book shelf quilt

    I made this a couple weeks ago for my DDL's birthday. She's a teacher & avid reader.
    I used the pattern on Moda Bakeshop but just did a small section. All scraps & titles are from my saved selvages.

    What an awesome idea. Good use of the selvages, and you did not need a large amount.

    I love the use of selvages! I've wanted to do one of these, but I don't have an embroidery machine for the titles (and it would take me a LONG time to do them by hand). I'll have to keep an eye on the selvages I trim and save back ones that are appropriate for this. Thanks for the inspiration.
    Courtesy is not optional.

    What a great idea for the titles! You made a lovely little hanging.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.
