While we were on our Grand Canyon Road Trip last summer, we stopped in the sweetest junk shop somewhere in Arizona. Vintage quilt garlands hung everywhere in the store, and I was inspired to use one of my old quilts to make this Upcycled quilt garland.
I was looking for a good vintage quilt for this project for a long time, but decided to do it with a tattered, not as vintage quilt that I had. This poor blanket went through the laundry so many times that most of it was in ruins and either had to be thrown in the trash or turned into something funny.
How to make an upcycled quilt garland
To make the garland you need Bias binding together with cutting materials.
First cut out a template or a garland piece to use as a pattern. I created a triangle that was about seven inches long and about five inches wide.
Don’t worry if the quilt makes the triangle a little shaky. That is part of the charm.
Once all the triangles are cut …
… sew on the sides to prevent the filling from falling out and fray the edges.
I got my mother to finish this project for me as soon as I cut it.smile} and she sewn it twice to give it a really great finish. The double seam helps him lie flat, but you could get away with a stitch line if you’d like.
Once all the edges are sewn together, lay the pieces down in the order you want, put the top between a piece of bias tape and sew them all together.
Leave as much or as little space between the triangles as you want.
When the garland is ready, hang it wherever you need a little texture …
… And you have a really cute banner that gives color and pattern to a room.
