Deconstruction, ? reconstruction

I sliced up the hated swapped block quilt today. I have saved the sashing and border pieces - I think I might cut them into smaller strips and use them in plaiting or coiling to make something else - not sure what, but I can't just throw them away. They will probably end up in a plastic bag in the cupboard.

I have frogstitched (rippit,rippit) three of the blocks, and I think that I will be able to salvage them as individual quilted blocks quite easily. I still have the tenth block, plenty of backing and wadding. At the moment I am thinking of overlocked edges and faggoting to make a 5 by 2 table runner.

Whatever. It cannot help but be better.
