Your quilt is done! WOOHOO! And I FINALLY get to add a “Quilts Finished in 2010” sidebar! SO excited!
And, um, it has actually been done for a couple weeks. Sorry. I will get it in the mail this week, I promise! There’s going to be a little extra something in your package for the delay. (I’ll show it to the rest of you after she has received it.)
For those of you not in the know, which would be everyone!, last year I showed several vintage sheet quilt tops, as you can see here: Vintage Sheets All Cut Up. Some time later my good friend Sherry looked through my blog and fell in love with the vintage sheet quilts and begged for one of them. Since I hadn’t given any of them away yet – or, let’s be honest here – finished any of them, I was happy to oblige!
My mom and I combined 2 of the quilt tops to make a better size for an adult. The original tops were 40×48, which is a great size for a little one but a little small for an adult to snuggle in. The new size quilt for Sherry is 48×56. And it is backed with another vintage sheet:
I handed it over to my mom for her choice of pantograph, and isn’t it just gorgeous!?!? I LOVE how pretty and feminine the quilting is — it really just adds a ton to the overall quilt!
I hope you like it Sherry! Really sorry it took so long to actually finish. It was all my fault as it took a couple months for me to just get around to putting on the binding! Oops! And almost as long to put it in the mail. Yikes!
