i think i am just happy....

i have been in love w vintage sheets for awhile now....inspired by jeni at incolororder ...she is pretty much an expert in vintage ! it makes me smile that "vintage" is the sixty and seventies though !!!


this vintage sheet, orange flannel and striped fabric made the perfect trio

quilted w sunny day by gali design

love love this stripe binding
i pieced the backing w a strip of the sheet...

this wholecloth quilt is so HAPPY !

had a bit of fun w raw applique as well....
such a pretty floral....had an old sears label w 50/50 poly cotton

this is one happy, sunny ,

and cheerful quilt!!

i think i am just happy....
i found this sheet at the thriftstore for $2.50 prewashed it w oxyclean....used superior so fine on quilt top and superior bottomline in my bobbin... the sheet was 50 cotton 50 poly so i was a bit nervous about possible tension problems....especially because there is a lot of advice NOT to use sheets for quilting...i was very lucky and had no problems at all....xoxoxo  Pam

  4. Seriously lovely! :) I have heard problems with quilting with vintage sheets too, but have had no problems myself. I think many of the issues involve brand new (still in the package) vintage sheets. They are super stiff and much more difficult to sew with!

    Happy quilting!
