This started a an old patch work curtain. I had to wash it 4 times to get all the dirt out! I then backed it with another curtain. I use this as a throw for the dogs to lie on when on the bed.

Of two minds wether to make this spotted fabric into a throw for summer, to “match” the other bed linen.

I’ve had this quilt for a few years. It was already patch worked in style. We just upgraded to a king size quilt. To save money & recycle I cut the back off the quilt & used this to extend the quilt. I then backed the quilt with a vintage floral bed sheet. I’m happy with the result.
