VINTAGE


Am happy today because I will be finishing my vintage quilt.
It is so sweet !
The fabric nice, worn and soft, that softness that takes years of using and washing to acquire.


Adding fun to the quilt, 
I made a pillow case and crochet the edge with Erin's favorite color
Green
I believe Erin will be very pleased with her new quilt and pillowcase.

I have started collecting vintage fabric. It seems I just can't get enough.
I love when I find bed sheet sets for $1:50. 
Can you imagine making a beautiful quilt for under $9.
And yes you will have plenty of left over fabric.
To
line a laundry basket
make pillow covers
edge in lace for head pieces on chairs
cut into 2 inch strips for rugs
oh my I have to go and have some Thursday fun with my vintage fabrics.

I guess because of my sheet connection, that makes me vintage too!
