Vintage Sheet Lap Quilt
I have quilts on my mind - guess it has been the cooler weather of late that caused this...Who knows. I'm excited about my first vintage sheet quilt just completed. Next in line will be a quilt using some vintage chenille and other reclaimed linens. Oh how fun...
On this quilt I used 4 1/2" blocks made from my fat quarter bundles I sell at my markets and on Etsy. Then I used a layer of Warm and White and backed it with a reclaimed Martha Stewart coverlet I scored at a thrift store. I brought the backing around to the front and machine sewed. I have tied the quilt with yellow embroidery floss here and there. The vintage sheets are a poly/cotton blend and are extremely soft to the touch.
I know I made this to sell, but do I really have to?
