Patchwork Quilt Chair is made using antique quilts. It’ was upholstered with several older quilts using the best parts.
My Mommie-in-law is a creative talented lady:) She sews, does all kinds of needlework even cross stitch, makes jewelry, creates artwork and quilts and that is to just name a few and if its out there, she has done it:). If I followed her around everyday, I could gather enough material for posts for 10 blogs, lol. She always comes up with unusual ideas and has the talent to carry them out.
About a month ago I walked into her home and I saw this awesome chair sitting proudly in her dinning room. The quilt on the back of the chair and the cushion came from an old family quilt that I had brought to her. Yes, I knew she would do something awesome with it but I would have never thought of this.
She had purchased old quilts in an estate sale and the quilts were very worn in some spots but in good shape in others. She utilized the best of the quilts and had this chair upholstered with them. Isn’t it gorgeous?
Now for the Patchwork Chair before pictures
In this photo, you can see the antique quilt in the right top corner. Yes, I believe this chair deserves a name. I don’t think my Mommie-in-law would mind if I named it for her. I always think of sunbonnets, sunflowers and American Quilts when I hear the name Hannah.
So here’s Hannah!! Isn’t she just beautiful!!

I love this. Did you reupholster yourself (or herself?) or did you send it to a shop. I have wanted to learn how to reupholster for a long, long time!
