It is made of a mixture of vintage sheets and vintage fabrics and even the white is a vintage sheet that had a lovely embroidered edge.
I have been collecting vintage sheets as I have found them in Op Shops in NZ and Australia, for the last few years. I have quite a collection now - (husband rolls his eyes).
This quilt is made of pieces from my collection, from a vintage fabric swap I took part in and from squares
swapped with my lovely friend Cait. My friend Lisa also gave me some vintage fabrics before we left Brisbane, which make an appearance in here too.
With well over 300 squares I was struggling to decide what to make... and then I saw a fabulous cushion made by Janelle Wind on an IG post and a fab zig zag rainbow quilt made by my friend Simone. I was INSPIRED! That very same day this quilt top was made.
Last week I FINALLY bought a walking foot and taadaa! It's finished!!!
I still have about 250 squares to use! My girls are fighting over this one so maybe I'll need to make another.
Two more quilts are quilted and sitting ready to have the binding stitched down so there will be more quilt loveliness coming very soon! I feel like I am accomplishing huge things with these quilts!!
