Vintage Sheet Destash

Ever since I finished Stella's vintage sheets quilt, I've been hacking up my sheet stash and I finally have some to share.  Most are for sale in my etsy shop, but I also have one to give away!
I am giving away one of these sets of die-cut pennant sets all out of vintage sheets. 
Just leave a comment to enter. Giveaway will close Monday, March 15 at midnight MST.
I also have a few sets for sale.
I have sets of 50 6" squares available as well. 
POST EDIT: So sorry. These are gone.
Vintage linens fat quarters
Finally, I have about 10 sets of Vintage Sheets cut into Fat Quarters (pieces 18" x 22").  They are random collections, but all good. Mostly white backgrounds.  Sadly, when all of this is gone, that's it. I've saved a few bits and pieces for myself, but most of it will be happy with a new home.

And just in case you are looking for ideas to use all this vintage sheet goodness, check out the Vintage Sheets Blog! While you are there you can have another chance to win a second set of pennant triangles - and a bunch of other great vintage-sheet-giveaways! 

Thanks for all the great input on your own social media consumption. Makes me feel better about myself.

Thanks to everyone who entered- it's fun to share the vintage love. :)

WINNER:  Susanne said...
Soooo cute fabrics :)
Best wishes

  24. I've been wanting to jump on the vintage sheets bandwagon, and just rec'd a scrap pack from Jeni/In Color Order, but as soon as I started thinking about it, "they" always say NOT to use sheets for your quilt backs b/c of the thread count. Are vintage sheets of a lesser thread count?

    ReplyDelete
