Another Vintage Finish

It's been a good month for finishes. Yet another vintage sheet quilt is complete. This time one for the youngest daughter, affectionately known as DD2.  It is a simple quilt of squares.  You might remember it from here.  Vintage sheets are so pretty that I feel they need very little to make them look good.



The quilting was straight lines 1/4" on each side of the seam and it was a very quick means of holding it together.









I love how it turned out and I hope DD2 enjoys several years cuddling under it!


Until next time...

Looks lovely Jane - full of individuality. I'm sure DD2 will treasure it and the time you spent on it. She's a lucky girl. Well done for finishing it.

I am sure this quilt is nice and soft since those sheets have probably been washed a few times! Another beautiful quilt!

It's fabulous! Maybe I should try that again...quilting both sides of the seam...it's such a nice finish.

Those vintage sheets are so pretty - this quilt shows all the pretty prints off so well. You sure are getting a lot done this fall.

Quilting both sides of the seam is a great idea! Squares look so simple until one tries to do it.

Fantastic. Soft and gentle and feminine. A quilt to use till it wears out and then some. Cherrie

Hi Jane, Your quilt is beautiful! Who would have thought all those bright flowery sheets that I remember from my childhood could turn out so pretty all sewn together like that. I am sure your daughter will treasure it.
