This cat was recently found hiding in one of my closets. Probably because I don’t use him in my decor. But s(he) does provide a great example of some of the little projects that can be done with an antique or vintage quilt or part of one that is can no longer be used as bedding. Actually, the cat is also vintage since he has made is home in the closet for so long.
Overall, it is about 17” long and is about 12” tall.
The quilt used here was originally stitched together by hand. The picture below shows the tiny little hand made stitches where the fabric was pieced together. Of course, it was also hand quilted.
This close-up below shows the aged and yellowed antique lace that was used as the collar.
The project is really a very nice way to salvage, or make cute vintage “thingys” from a vintage quilt that was once so lovingly pieced together.
Later this week, look for news of a GIVEAWAY !!
