Mim requested to see frayed edges close up. So here they are. The wonderfulness of them is that they are oh so soft. I pet these roses when I go to bed at night and again when I wake in the morning. I just love the feel of it.
How to: simply sew to within a quarter of an inch or so in from the edge...leave the edge unfinished and then after the quilt is washed and run through the dryer once or twice the fraying takes place. It's that easy. I've seen this done with squares too and that also looked very artsy.
