I have a certain weakness for fabric.
Even.....
The Old, The Unusable, The Unwanted.
Maybe especially for the
Old, unusable, unwanted...


This fabric was not ever destined for greatness.
It was used for samples!
(Decorator Samples)
Poor things!
These scraps couldn't even DREAM about
becoming something usable!

But I DREAM.
Yes. I do.

 I added a loose weave cotton/linen like fabric to the back...
without any batting.
I bound it with something shiny...
Who knows what kind of fabric????
I won't use it again!!
I found out it is
NOT USER FRIENDLY.
:/
But....
Again...
It was an OLD unused piece leftover from
someone else's project.

I found out today during my Sunday nap
that this coverlet works perfectly.
Not too heavy...
Not too light....
JUST. RIGHT.!

  1. Not only were you good and kind to this orphan fabric, it turned around and was good to you in return. What more could you ask for.

  4. Great save of these unwanted samples. Very inviting quilt and probably just the right weight for the warmer days ahead.

  5. Gorgeous fabrics. You've brought them up to date by mixing up the patterns. It looks great - and very snuggly!

  6. Ooh, I love your new coverlet! Those decorator samples are so special. Good idea to use them without batting.
