Goodwill Trip and The Letter Holder Make Over

Pin It
I love Goodwill and I know it sounds strange, but the place just makes me smile.
This is what I found this past week.

Goodwill Trip and The Letter Holder Make Over

I'm going to do my thing to it and add it to my office/sewing room.
 I cleaned it, sanded just a bit and primed.

I added a base coat of pink, and then 2 more coats.

Added highlights and a couple of coats of top sealer.

It looks very nice in my office/sewing room and
made me feel better about not redo everything in the room. (I've started the living room!)

It's machine pieced and hand quilted. I use only 100% cotton.
The Quilt back. The stitches are very small and add a texture to the quilt.

I like this, I pulled out a red, white and blue quilt. added it to the table and it works.
But for, "How long?"
