Vintage Sheet Quilts


This week I had a customer request for two vintage sheet quilts which gave me the chance to finish some quilt tops I created a little while ago...alright lets be honest it was over a year ago now!

Check them out HERE and HERE!

I used some of my favourite vintage sheets for the backing and gingham for the binding!

I quilted one with lines and squares and the other with a zig zag like Amelie's quilt.










They are now all packaged up and on the way to their new home!

Amelie's Briar Rose Quilt










Vital Statistics



My Amendments to the Pattern: Instead of the yardage suggested I purchased a complete set of fat quarters and used all 20 of the prints instead of 17. I cut the fat quarters into 9 squares measuring 6 inches each. The final size of the finished quilt is 76 inches by 66 inches. 

To quilt it I used a walking foot on my standard machine and quilted every second zig zag 1/4 inch from the seam. This created a lovely chevron pattern on the back of the quilt.

To back and bind the quilt I used a large off-white flat sheet to keep it plain and leave the focus on the beautiful rainbow!

For the wadding I used a premium seed cotton wadding.

The quilt is now tucked away for Amelie's birthday in April. It is looking forward to many years of snuggles, fort building, hide and seek, and imaginative play!
