    By now, I guess most of you know how much I love quilted furniture among other things and thought you would enjoy seeing these pics of patchwork furniture! Nothing can take the place of those beautiful quilted sofas I showed in my other 2 threads. Here they are if you missed them:

    Those cushions should look neat on patio furniture. I can see them in my back yard on my black iron set..with all shades of green and white.

    I would do mine and sew the seams with a regular stitch and then flattened out and then with a zig zag stitch for extra strength.

    I have some more pics I forgot! My comp throws the pics around so it's no wonder I miss some of them. I can't find the other PW mirror yet but I did find one and another dresser that's really neat!! Enjoy! :D

    patchwork dresser - love it!

    Apholstering is hard enough, I can't imagine trying to do it with quilts but the pieces sure are beautiful. I have a rocker upstairs with only a small footstool and a seat cushion. hmmmmm. . . . . . . .

    These are the coolest things I've EVER seen! I am in a non-quilt quilting phase and would love to do this. I'm sure it's very hard - but the dressers looks do-able and I have one that needs re-vamping (also in a bedroom that has a scrappy quilt). Thanks for posting!

    Love them. And if they ever wear in a spot and need a patch, no one would ever know!

    Very cool! I need to cover up my dining room chairs and this would be perfect. However, one question - are you just using regular cotton fabric as it appears? What a great idea! How ever did you think of this?

    These are fantastic! My husband would probably hate it, but I'd love to do all the furniture in my house this way! Failing that, even one outstanding chair or couch would be fantastic!

    No, the artist said she painted the dressers and did a polyurethane as the final step! She said it was easy! Anyone can do this!

    :D :D ;)

    p.s. The first dresser was hers she did and she may have done the one I showed at the end but am not sure.

    I'm an interior designer from heart and this is right up my alley!! I know it's not for everyone, but there are ideas that can be gleaned from just looking at the pics!! You might be inspired from a color you see here to use for your next quilt!! .....or one of those fabrics!! haha.

    :D :D :D ;)
