As you might guess, I own a fabric store because I love fabric, hence the name - Fabric Fascination. The first 8 inches of a new bolt of fabric is always mine. First I trim off the selvage edge, and save it in my selvage scrap bag for future projects. If you like selvages, here is a whole blog about using them. Next I cut a 3 1/2" piece, and subcut it into 3 1/2" squares. When I have a big enough stack of them, I sell them in my shop as charm squares.
The remainder of the first cut goes into a large plastic bin of fabric waiting to be used in scrappy projects like this 1000 pyramid quilt.
Happy Sewing ♥
P. S. Don't Miss the WINTER SALE going on right now in my Fabric Shop!
