    New use for Quilt

    Yesterday my DH came into my studio and said he needed something to cover the pool table to keep the dust off of it. I didn't really want to make something out of the fabric on my shelves (not that I didn't have enough to use) so I asked him if he wanted to use one of our quilts. I picked out a "manly" looking quilt for his Man Cave. I like the way it looks. Name:  Pool table cover.JPG

    What a great way to have a quilt displayed and used!
    I really like the arrangement of log cabin blocks on that quilt, it is one I haven't seen before.

    Thank you, Rebecca. I made this quilt from scraps in my stash.

    I hope those men find a place other than the floor to put it while playing! Such a nice quilt.

    great use of the quilt. love the arrangement also.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    It looks great on the pool table and adds lots of charm to the Man Cave!

    He loves it.

    RedGarnet, he does keep it off the floor. He puts it one of his pinball machines. Guess I trained him pretty well. LOL
