Quilt abuse

That's fair warning for anyone who will be distressed to see how I repurposed a fraying vintage quilt top to make a laptop case for my recent trip to San Francisco (which is, by the way, my excuse for two weeks without blog entries).



The case was hastily constructed when I couldn't bear the thought of another voyage with my former uninspired, bulky and ill-fitting purchased laptop case. The bag is padded with some quilt batting and "headliner" which I found in the remnant section - this is the stuff they put on the ceilings of cars. I really love looking at the fabrics in this quilt top. A close of of my favorite - the orange pigs.

Great idea - and it's not quilt abuse as long as you are extending it's life - which this will last you for many, many years. . . .

this is a perfect use of a raggity old quilt top. My laptop is having envy!

This is great! I don't think it's abuse at all. Repurposing something unused into something loved and appreciated is such a great thing! It's quilt recycling!
