    Recycling at it's best.

    Hi everyone
    My daughter got rid of two pairs of purple curtains and one pair of pink so I made her this.

    It's not perfect as I had trouble quilting it, manouvering the weight of fabric was a problem but hey
    recycling is recycling.

    yay for recycling! and what a nice result; I always get super protective of my finished quilts (maybe I haven't made enough yet) and am always worried that they'll get dirty or snagged or otherwise damaged. with a recycled quilt like this one I think I wouldn't be so hesitant to just go for it and bring it along on a picnic; nice job and thanks for sharing and the inspiration!

    Be kind to yourself, by being kind to others. When you help others you help yourself.
