Hey girl, hey! I’m going to give a raggedy quilt a new life as framed art. I found this little gem at the Goodwill Outlet, and Aunt Criddy has her doubts, but I’m excited to make it new again! Click on the video below, or follow along here.

Let’s make some crafty art!
We’re gonna start with this beautiful keepsake quilt… oh wait. It’s anything but beautiful or a keepsake! I wouldn’t cut up a perfectly good quilt, and as you can see this one has definitely seen its best day.
Here are my .25 cent frames! They are about to look a whole lot better, I promise.
This oval one needed a scrubbing from a Clorox wipe!
Commercial break! If y’all miss out on the video above, you’ll also miss what happened on the lake when we combined one Aunt Criddy with one Mr. Erin and one boat! Y’all know we always have fun, right?
Back to our program!
I painted the frames, first one in Apothecary (green) and the second one in White Swan. I dried them both with my heat tool in between coats.
And y’all know I got my sanding sponge out just to bring out some rustic charm.
Time for the quilt! I found an area that coordinated best with my frame, cut it out and hot glued it to a piece of cardboard. I had already traced the openings and cut cardboard out for each frame.
I used Mod Podge to adhere my fabric to the cardboard. But first, I ironed out my piece of quilt and then ironed it again onto the cardboard.
I hot glued the fabric to the cardboards for each frame, then hot glued them into their frames.
How about a word? Yes, please! I just painted a wood word with White Swan, then hot glued it onto the Apothecary framed piece.
I decided to have a word on just one of my projects, and y’all, I love how these turned out!
