I immediately knew upon moving into my new home that I needed something to disguise the view of my craft room. LOL It is open from the kitchen and since I knew it would be a disaster most of the time with me working in there and all of my supplies, I started looking for a screen to use until I redo the kitchen completely and block that room from view.
I found this three panel screen at Hobby Lobby for under $50.00 with a coupon. It had burlap panels that had velcro strips at the top and bottom of each panel so they could be removed.
Enter an old vintage quilt that was beyond usable for anything practical.
I cut it into strips for the panels and just hand sewed the quilt pieces over the burlap panels. For you quilt lovers, don't panic. The quilt was in really bad shape with a lot of torn and worn places. If you look closely, there were several places I had to hand stitch doilies on top of places that were almost completely worn thru.
I'm excited because it turned out exactly as I envisioned it being. I tried to match the quilt pattern across all three panels and did pretty good.
It will work perfectly for now! I love when something comes together like you want it to.
