Lessology Challenge #21 "Hearts"

Lessology Challenge #21.......  "Angel or Fairy repurposed from an old quilt"

I collect old Cutter Quilts.  These are quilts that are totally worn out and can no longer be repaired. 

I've created a new pattern using these quilts and hearts. 
In these pictures I will show you how I will cut out pieces from these old quilts using several hearts and modified hearts to create a new, repurposed item.  We will call it an Angel or Fairy with many purposes.  

This is were I have cut apart the pieces needed for
the  "Angel or Fairy"

On the left it shows the pieces, and on the right
it shows the completed "Angel" ready to be
sent to a new bride..

This pictures shows a "Tooth Fairy" that was completed
from another old quilt.

On the back of this "Fairy" I made a pocket that has a
little poem I made about tooth fairies.. The tooth can
be slipped into a zip lock baggie and ready to
trade the tooth in for some coins..
These are all original works of art by me...

  1. Oh wow. You've certainly repurposed those old quilts very well. This looks amazing!

  2. Oh thank you! I've made angels in the past but decided to create a new pattern with the heart theme. This was special because of the wedding quilt was created with loving hands and I was able to repurpose the old quilt into angels.. hugs cj
