I finally finished one of my old projects! These blocks were made for me by the lovely ladies of the Vintage Sheet Quilting Bee before my daughter was born (she is 19 months old now!). The block pattern is a tutorial by Aneela Hoey from the first issue of Fat Quarterly. Aneela generously allowed me to share the tutorial with my fellow Bee members.
The blocks are all made from vintage bed sheets and I asked everyone to stick to a 2-color scheme. The sashing is Kaufman Essex Linen in Natural.
I didn’t have a sheet big enough for the back, so I decided to use up my vintage sheet stash and sew up a patchwork back. I’ve really been loving simple, patchwork quilts lately, so this fulfilled my desire to make my own!
I love how cheery and bright this quilt is. It reminds me of my own bed sheets from when I was a little girl. It’s twin-sized, so I’m hoping my daughter will want it on her bed someday. She’s still in a crib, so she is having fun snuggling under it while we read books on the couch for now.
