….and this little piggie stayed home with me!

Last week, Charlie and I went to visit our son in Tennessee.  While there, we went to quite a few flea markets and antique shops.  During one of my shopping sprees, I purchased three old quilts.  One of the quilts was rather worn but I purchased it knowing that I would do something with it.   With that being said, I did indeed make something with it.  These little piggies were made out of that old worn quilt!

I wonder what else I could do with it…..I still have a lot of that old worn quilt left….any ideas?

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Palm Sunday.  I hope you all are enjoying your weekend.

  1. Very cute, Gail! Nice way to repurpose an old quilt, especially if it has some damaged spots. You could always do a few pillows or bunnies {my favorite}. Maybe a table runner if you have enough.

  2. I'm borrowing this idea Gail. I have an old quilt and it's time I did something with it. Love the little piggie.

  12. Loved the little pigs you made from the old quilt. How about a laundry bag to hang in the bedroom or bathroom for your small items. I have one which given to me as a present and it's very useful, as all the small items sink to the bottom of the big laundry basket.

  15. What sweet little pigs! I love them, and that is a great way to use an old quilt. I have seen lots of things made with old quilts but nothing is coming to mind at the moment.
    A pillow, maybe?

  17. Hi Gail, could you send me the link of that rooster pic you copied from the copy cat challenge. I have a woman who wants the same picture and of course the decor store where I purchased it is long gone. I told her she could make one:) Thanks.
