    Pics of my refinished vintage stool using a quilted piece

    Yes, you can use quilts as reupholstery fabric:> I refinished the cabinet a while ago and it didn't come with a stool. I got a stool that is the original match to the cabinet, but it was a blonde color and the top was pretty nasty. I refinished the stool and covered it with a scrap quilt piece(pieced and quilted on my 301). It's comfy and looks much better than it did originally!

    I wouldn't mind sitting on your stool all day, quilting. It is beautiful and looks so comfortable. I like the black pieces that tie in the color of the paint. Super job.!
    I love my sweet hubby, and two dogs. Love to quilt and sew but am not good at it.

    It's nice to see what they do in outer space! Never thought of using quilts for that. Thanks for the info!
