What To Do With Ruined Vintage Quilts?

In my wanderings I have come across several AMAZING old quilts that were handsewn, beautiful, unique, and....FALLING APART!  It always makes me a little sad, because I wonder if one day that will me MY quilts.  I've never purchase one of these un-loved quilts but after seeing Terri's post, I wish I had.

Terri from over at Cherished Treasures has the perfect solution for those tattered quilts.  She turns them into AMAZING throw pillows.  Check these out:




Aren't they amazing.  I know next time I come across a tattered quilt, I will think a little more creatively.  Thanks, Terri, for this wonderful idea!!
