Using Quilts on Furniture

Listen, many of you might not know, but I had cervical neck surgery to replace four disks and fusion on June 2nd. I've been living in the land of NO bending over, keeping my neck upright in a tight plastic cervical collar. At least I've stopping biting myself, lol!

Ever try to sew a hexie with it at eye level? Give it a try--it doesn't bode well. I can't even read or sewing on the machine. In other words, I had spent the last five weeks doing nothing but watch Netflix on my tablet propped up with a pillow. All this time and nothing to show for it!

But, alas, I was not one to follow Twitter, Facebook, etc. and when told about all the attributes of Pinterest, I just didn't have time. Well, I do now. Thanks (maybe not!) to fellow quilter Sue for introducing it to me. I'm so hooked now that I grab my tablet and check it out first thing in the morning before even getting out of bed. In a brief five weeks or so I have pinned 2,846 items to do with hexagons alone. Check me out under the name Kathleen Currier.

Speaking of that, I wanted to share with you a couple of ideas I found for those old cutter quilts or perhaps even a new project.

Yes, those are bottle caps!
