Default New little "quilt"

Slightly disappointed the little quilt I purchased this morning from the local thrift store became a pillow sham in the washer and dryer. It was rolled up and tagged as a little quilt. I popped it into the washer and dryer. When it came out of the dryer it was inside out and a pillow sham. You know those kind sold really cheap.
but still not too bad for $2.00

If you don't need a sham, recycle. It could become a tote bag or a table runner.

I often buy such "shams" at thrift stores to deconstruct and/or reuse in making blocks. Sometimes I sew them back in their original design or just resew the seams to make sure they are good. 4-6 of these sewn together make a nice quilt top of a sampler style.

I have used a quilted pillow sham as a dresser scarf for years. It is a pretty pattern, nicely made, fits perfectly, and looks really nice on my dresser.
