I thrifted these chairs for  $15 each.  They had dark green flamestitch on them.  I bought the lime green at a drapery workroom sale for fifty cents a yard. Then I reupholstered them. The center design is inspired by the book Celtic Quilting.  I hot glued purple fringe on the bottom edge.

Those are really beautiful!  Do you have upholstering experience or did you just wing it? (please to note pun on "wingbacks" there.  heh.)  Professional upholstering is so ungodly expensive-- I'd love to be able to do it myself.

You are amazing! These are very good looking chairs.

Just popped in at the quilt you just finished as well. How do you find the time to work on all these wonderful things?
