This is a Bright Hope style block which Valerie creates with the selvedge pieces in her stash – and take a look at the border too.
This block was made by Valerie with the small scrappy pieces left in her stash, but you can recreate these from longer strips and strings sewn together.
The block itself uses the partial seam technique round a centre square and if you would like to see this in more detail, you can click here:
Valerie also reminds you that there is a lot of information in the selvedge edge of your fabric, which can be helpful when choosing colours; click here to enjoy another little video on that subject.
and finally shows you how she adds interest to her border by using the non-fray properties of the selvedge by topstitching them ontop of each other rather than turning them into the seam allowance.
Lyn has also made great use of the selvedges for a bookcover which you can check out in the Show & Tell.
