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.
