Look What I Made: Favourites Vintage Sheet Quilt

I saved some of my very favourite prints for this queen size quilt. I really love it! I let it come together without too much planning. I put the quilt top centre together and added a large border of white fabric. I then cut the border down to suit the backing sheet. There is only minimal quilting as I don’t really have the space to properly baste a queen size quilt. It all came together without too much trouble and can see it getting a lot of use in the years to come. vintage sheets quilt 3 vintage sheets quilt 1

    Just lovely! And I recognize so many of those designs from my youth, which suddenly seems long ago now that I apply the word ‘vintage’.

      Hi Robby,
      Vintage is meant in the fondest way possible of course! There is a nostalgia to the prints, even if we did not have them ourselves.
