VINTAGE QUILT


I bought a bunch of old vintage sheets from Good Will a couple of months ago.
My youngest likes all things vintage and thought these would make a wonderful bed quilt.
So I on spent an hour cutting and stacking.


About four hours sewing and
- cooking
- answering the phone
- letting the dogs out
- letting the dogs in
- repeat above a thousand times
{ no kidding ask my middle daughter.
puppies do not know what they want,
in out- in out all day long }


Point being : this quilt was really, really fast !


I love the results.
So very
 cheerful
simple
fresh looking
I will be using a flat vintage sheet for the backing.
Quilting ladies please do not fall to your knees, [ at least till the smelling salts are with in reach ].         
I know sheets are not 100% cotton
[  these aren't ]
but it is all part of the 
use it up
or do with out
thingie
and they are so pretty.
This honey will be machined quilted with simple eloquence.
I love 
simple
and
eloquence
