Vintage Sheet Quilt Top Completed!
This week I made the 4 squares whole!
And now my vintage sheet quilt top is done and will lie in wait for the day I get a chance to quilt it so I thought I would share photos now as that may be a while!
Sneaky little Clementine...poor girl just wanted to jump on the bed the whole time!
Never fear she got her wish moments after this photo was taken!
I am not 100% in love with it - otherwise I'm sure I would be into the quilting of it already - I wonder if I should have left out the darker squares - or only used scraps I loved - but on the other hand I am pretty impressed that my scraps made something that big!
Now onto the smaller size squares!
I cut out 324 squares
Each square was cut 6 inches by 6 inches
Seam Allowance was 1/2 inch
I made 36 medium squares made up of 9 squares each
the I made 4 large squares made up of 9 of the medium squares each
This ended up creating a large queen size quilt top!
Which may or may not make it onto our bed...I just have to butch it up a bit to meet husband approval standards?
Perhaps some strategically placed hammers?
Oh wait...that's for me again!
