Current WIP




When I first saw this quilt, I knew I had to make it out of vintage sheets. All of the largest squares and most of the mediums were fussy cut. Could never have done it without taking part in the Vintage Sheet Swap, (which is now in round 4 - I was going to skip this round, but I need to replenish my stash!) This is where I'm at right now. The original has 3 panels, but only works up to about 60x102, which would be great for a twin xl bed, but not my king. So, after seeking Katie's advice (yeah, make it bigger) I've got two more panels in the works. I hope to have it pieced by the end of the week. Not looking forward to quilting it, though. The quilting will be very, very simple, as in straight lines. With all the color going on in it, I don't think it will matter much. If I get super ambitious, maybe I can have it quilted, as were looking at about 10 hours of drive time over Labor Day weekend. (Hand sewing binding is one of my favorite driving activies - well, not driving, passengering activies. Closely followed by hexies!)
