After a couple years of collecting vintage sheets, swapping fat quarters and amassing a collection, I’ve finally made something with them. (Well, I take that back, I did do my hoops.) But I’ve finally pieced a quilt with them!
As I laid out the blocks one night I was worried that I was creating a hot mess. But when I came back to look at the design wall the next day, I felt better about the situation. The colors looked so much better in the daylight and I accepted that the wild prints give it personality.
So, as you can see, it was a thrill for me to have just the right person to motivate me to finally cut into my vintage sheets stash and start sewing. Also throw in the fact that it’s for a baby with a gorgeous vintage name like, Stella? Match made in heaven.
I was stoked to find just the right tangerine-y orange for binding. Perfect. Adorable quilting by my friend, Meridee.
I cut my fabric into 6″ squares – so they are 5.5″ finished. I had a bunch of vintage sheet fat quarters so 6″ squares was the easiest size to cut. Now I need to make a quilt for myself. Once I get my quilt laid out, I will probably sell the rest of my pre-cut squares as well as some fat quarters. I make no promises as to how soon this will happen, but hopefully sooner, rather than later.
