Default the great quilt makeover!

The queen bedspread in my guest room was wearing out (just fabric front and batting back), so I decided it was time for a "makeover"... I pin-basted a solid floral to the batting side, then started log-cabin style sewing 8 inch wide strips to the "front". I just sewed each seam right through all the layers so the floral side would look quilted when I was done, and kept adding strips until I got to near the edges. Then I folded the floral to the scrappy side for binding. A fun three days while keeping my other eye (and ears) on the grandkids playing in the next room!

A save! I would never have thought of that! And with the price of batting, if you use your stash it's a free project!!

This is a great "SAVE". Beautifully done and either side is great. I think the floral for Spring/Summer and the patches Fall/Winter. Love your idea!
