A Much Loved Log Cabin Quilt

Many, many years ago I made my niece, Alissa, a log cabin quilt.  She used and loved this quilt until there wasn’t much left of it. Literally.  I won’t post a picture of that because it’s almost heartbreaking.  She gave this quilt back to me in hopes that I can do something with it.

It just so happens that I did something with that tattered quilt.

She just got married last month and for her bridal shower present I presented her with this unique gift.  I found three different picture frames (from Goodwill) and painted and stained them to give them a worn look.  I cut out three reasonably good pieces of the quilt and put them in the frames.  This is a wonderful way to remember that beloved quilt.  (sorry about the light glare on the center frame)

 

I’m hoping she’ll love them for many years to come.
