First, thanks for the opinions on the previous post! I’ve decided diagonal and larger (more usable size), so I have 8 more blocks to make. I’ll be working on that again…someday.
A week or two ago I received back my selection from the Vintage Sheet Fat Quarter Swap I joined. There’s nothing like getting new-to-me fabric in the mail!
Here are the fat quarters I received:
AND, I already got busy on them!
Yep, 5 quilt tops done! The ones with pink are 40″ x 48″, where the blue one is a wee 32″ x 40″. I don’t want these vintage sheets to mix with my stash since they aren’t 100% cotton. The best way I knew to keep them from mingling was to go ahead and make them into stuff, and that’s exactly what I did!
The tops are kind of boring, but they will serve a purpose: having some tops I can easily quilt up when random cousins, etc. have babies. My husband already has *another* cousin who just had a little girl, so she’ll be getting one of these tops. So I need to at least get one of these quilted pretty quickly!
Problem is, even with 5 tops I still haven’t used up all the vintage sheets! But I’m kind of bored with these quilts at this point, so I will be putting them aside in a separate bag right now.
But I did save a couple of my fave sheets to become stuffed animals – can’t wait! In the meantime, I’ll show complete pictures of the quilts once they’re, well, complete!
