6 Ways to Repurpose Beyond Repair Quilts
By: A Cat Eye Girl  -  1/13/2011


What do you do with an old scrap quilt that is decayed beyond repair to use as a quilt?  An old quilt represents a year of someone's life, it can't just be tossed out without saving what can be saved. 

Here are 6 ideas that we came up with for repurposing an old quilt:

1. Repurpose it as a Chirstmas tree skirt.

2. Repurpose it as a table runner.antique shows, Yakima, Tri-Cities, Seattle, Washington

3. Repurpose it as a doll blanket.

4. Repurpose it as a pillow cover.

5. Repurpose it as a basket liner.

6. Repurpose it as a shelf liner.
