Crazy Quilt Gargoyle

I found a Gargoyle in my Crazy Quilt.
He's staring out at me with not a happy face. He makes me feel guilty for cutting up the antique crazy quilt and doing my altered fabric art collage thingie to it. I almost feel like he's saying STOP! Stop cutting and restore this quilt!!!
Humn... Maybe... I've only cut one 7" strip off the quilt so far, it's still a nice piece... but then I wouldn't have a crazy quilt to alter if I stopped. What to do what to do...

Cat, I think you have to use it just as it is, with the outer fabric hanging off and everything. He wanted to get out,and you helped him!!
Methinks he's a 'good gargoyle, appreciative at the least. LOL

I agree, he's got to be happier uncovered! Maybe just cut him out and put him where he can see what you're doing. LOL.

He looks like he's unhappy where he is at the moment, and you need to rescue him!

laughing because I do this too....I use things and recycle them into artwork and sometimes feel SO GUILTY about it. I think that little man does not understand...The things you are making are so beautiful and give such joy , I am sure whomever originally put together this quilt is / would be in certain approval of what you are doing. You are restoring it's beauty.

I know you have to do what your gut tells you , but I for one vote for You Doing That Thing That YOu Do with it !

Hush now Little Gargoyle Man !
! HUSH !

----He is just trying to spoil it for all of us !

You are probably making better use of the quilt by recycling it into art pieces. I say use this guy uncovered as an art piece in his own right!!

Beth said...

Oh, I think he is pretty amazing. And glad he is uncovered. You go girl!!!
Lady says "yip yip" to Blue!!!

Oh, I've never heard of a Gargoyle before. Is it a good or a bad sign?

Yes, I think you should restore that little treasure... ;-))

I love him. I know you will do something wonderful with him. As for the rest of the quilt, I'd do whatever seems the most fun and best use of the piece.
