vintage sheets


I have been practically hoarding my vintage sheets. Buying them, but then just holding onto them. Which is silly really. Because they are always so much bigger than the new yardage that I buy.
But I was finally able to cut up a few to participate in the daily giveaway at the vintage sheet blog. And what a great reason to cut them up. Just to make something cute and then give it away. Just sharin' the vintage love!




I made the Disappearing Nine Patch doll quilt. It turned out bigger than my usual doll quilt. 17" x 17" actually. So it can really be used for not only the best behaved dolly, but also for the best baby. You decide.




Go visit the Vintage Sheet blog now and follow the rules. And visit daily for more fun sheet giveaways.

What a great idea! I love vintage sheets. I got a very nice king size one in a freecycle bag a few years back. It's big blue flowers :)
