A Little Bit Of Up-cycling…

20161114_153514

I picked up this old chair from an antiques shop the other day and I’ve now just reupholstered it with the Bonnie & Camille fabrics bundle I received in the Sew Sampler Box from The Fat Quarter Shop.  I  made-up the patchwork pattern and I’m actually quite pleased with how it’s turned out, bright and cheerful on this grey Autumn afternoon!

I’ve also finally gotten around to sending this quilt out to be long armed…

The thought of getting a quilt of this size through my small domestic machine isn’t one I relish, especially as the actual quilting isn’t my favorite part!  It’s been sat in a drawer for a year which is really sad, so that’s it I’ve sent it off!  I’ve given the lady doing it free rein on the quilting design so I can’t wait to get it back and see what she’s done!

Do you quilt your own or send them out?  Is sending them out to be long armed cheating in some way?
