What I Did With My Shabby Quilt


I'm not sure where I got this quilt but I'm always on the lookout for one...the more fabrics used - the more I love them...and if it's worn. that doesn't really bother me either...


It's been about a year and a half that I bought a sewing machine at an auction for $3..
can you believe it...$3? Well I finally opened it up over the Memorial Day weekend and decided to take this quilt and..


sewed up two pillows...

I even got the fiberfill from Goodwill for $1 a bag...
brand new!


made some cute flowers and added lace from a bag of goodies

that I posted about here...



the only problem is...I like them too much to put them outside..
and I think I need to get a new cushion for my loveseat...

Oh the problems we endure...

Wishing everyone a great week..

The pillows came out great! I've experience the same thing. I go to take a picture of something I've made and lo and behold, the dining table has a gouge in it or the tablecloth has some stains on it. Oh, the little bitty problems. :)

Take care, Linda

How perfectly shabby and cozy! Fabulous use of an old quilt that doesn't make you cry to cut it up.

Love these pillows! I always watch for quilts to use, lately I have found the weirdest colors-not my style for sure.
Fun idea to share

I love old patchwork quilts and I'll keep them until they fall apart! LOL!

I love the pillows you made and the rosettes are beautiful and the perfect finishing touches.
