Sew: old window framed quilt
A fabric scrap buster project that puts color on the wall and uses an old reclaimed window as a frame.
I'm finishing up the family room makeover by adding a little color on the long far wall.
When we moved in four months ago there was red on the walls, trim, railings, outlets, vents, stair risers - basically everywhere.
I painted the walls Benjamin Moore seapearl with white semi-gloss trim.
And now we have some wall art:
How to make an old window framed quilt:
1. Cut 3" cotton fabric squares:
2. Sew into strips:
3. Sew strips into rows:
4. Make quilt sandwich with backing, batting and top:
5. Windowpane quilt, wash and dry:
6. Press and trim then lay out pieces:
7. I stripped this old window to remove some paint:
Sand smooth and apply one coat clear poly.
8. Cut cardboard to fit windowpane.
Place fabric right side down into window and press cardboard down for a snug fit.
Apply hot glue in corners of window and cardboard for security.
Attach hanging hooks and wire.
