vintage sheet quilt
i've wanted to join in with Christina's Made by Hand link up for weeks now, but most of my sewing of late has not seemed photo or sharing worthy.. think piles of triangles ready to be sewn into bunting, a messy sewing room and threads covering the carpet.
but this week i was determined and with my new camera in hand i snapped away at the finally finished vintage sheet quilt. it has only taken me nearly two years to get it completed and on the bed.
it's not so much of a quilt as it's not actually quilted (several attempts with my little sewing machine later and the bulk of a Queen size quilt and it was just not working for me), so i guess its more of a bed spread. it's backed with strips of more vintage florals.
all the fabrics are from vintage cotton sheets: op-shopped, gifted and swapped.
speaking of swaps... anyone else missing Kellie of green tea and red nails annual vintage sheet FQ swap?
would you be interested in participating if i held a vintage sheet swap?
