Vintage Sheets All Cut Up

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:

Vintage Sheet Fat Quarters

AND, I already got busy on them!

Quilts in a Row

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!

Blue Vintage Sheet quilt

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!
