I became a bit turned around piecing my Around the World Christmas quilt
but after spending time with a seam ripper, I got my bearings again!
So much so, that it was completed with a border even!
And then I began seat cushion number 1 of 4 for the golf cart!
The old seats have long outlived their beauty but they had some structural decline, too.
I had to trace out the new plywood for this first-Bill used the jig saw to cut it out.
I cut out the heavy vinyl and then began stapling it in place.
Removing the old vinyl off the foam cushion with its original 1,000 staples is what took the longest!
Upholstery work is 90% muscles and only 10% mathematical!
In no time, I had it finished and ready to screw in place.
I'm pretty sure this seat will now outlive the rest of the cart!
Hooray! It is going to look so nice!ReplyDelete
Love the Christmas quilt. It looks like the perfect thing for a cozy cuddle.ReplyDelete
I am awed by your upholstery skills. I've tried it a few times and it is hard work.
Doesn't it feel good to make something we own "live longer" with just a bit of elbow grease.?ReplyDelete
How wonderful that the border fabric seems to continue the center design. Was that intentional or a happy coincidence?ReplyDelete
That Christmas quilt is gorgeous. I love the fabrics. Our golf cart at the lake could use new upholstery but I know that it's beyond me. You did a beautiful job.ReplyDelete
It's always fun to give old things new life! We really need more of that in this worldReplyDelete
I love the quilt. The border is just perfect for the rest of it!!ReplyDelete
You are a wonder! Is there anything you can't do?ReplyDelete
