My grandmother in law was given lots of fabric scraps. She passed the ones that she did not want on to me. They are taking over my closet, but I am having so much fun in using the free fabric to make other things!
Among all of those scraps were some quilt tops. Nothing too elaborate or extremely well done, but I still could not part with them.
I have been hanging on to them for a few months with no great idea of what to do. Ok, I have some ideas, but nothing that made me want to cut them up to do.
On my dining room table, I had a winter bowl full of pine cones, burlap, and pine branches. I had to get rid of my pine branches on the table, because the branches were very dried out. I couldn't leave my table bare, but wasn't sure what to do.
And then I remembered about those quilts. I took one of the strips and put it on my table as a table runner.
I also took the bowl that had the pine branches in and put in apples. Of course I washed it first :) Makes me think of fall.
I could probably sew the edges and make it look more professional, but I like the look that it presents. Reminds me of what we can do for free if we just look around.
I would love to hear your ideas for my other quilt tops. I have individual squares all the way to whole quilt tops.
