A Comfort and Comfortable!

 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!

  2. Love the Christmas quilt. It looks like the perfect thing for a cozy cuddle.
    I am awed by your upholstery skills. I've tried it a few times and it is hard work.

  3. Doesn't it feel good to make something we own "live longer" with just a bit of elbow grease.?

  4. How wonderful that the border fabric seems to continue the center design. Was that intentional or a happy coincidence?

  5. 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.
    Blessings,
