remember those vintage quilts i got from that garage sale? i finally got up the courage to throw them in the washing machine. they didn't fall apart - hooray! but the heavy one just would not dry! after torching it in the dryer forever - i decided to rip it apart. when i did, i found not one, but two blankets had been used as batting!
the backing was shredded anyways, so my daughter helped me to remove it, and as a thank you, i used the edges of the quilt (they'd been under the binding) to make some of these mama chic wrist cuffs! the middle one is mine, but there are two baby ones. i wish i had time to finish one more this morning. she's sleeping over tonight with 2 of her girl cousins.
