one sheet.

I have a little pile of vintage sheets at my house.
They keep looking at me...
Hinting they'd like some company.
Could I please find one more pretty sheet
before sending them away to
the vintage sheet patchwork swap??
"O.k.", I thought.
"I do like to shop at thrift stores.
Maybe there's another sheet wanting to
be turned into a quilt out there!"
I found more than one.

In fact, I had to leave some of the pretty sheets there.
:( :(

I couldn't buy them all...
Too bad.
I'll be cutting these up tomorrow...
Then I need to send them off!!
Maybe when that little pile is not looking at me,
I'll get my mind OFF of vintage sheets!!

And, of course you know, I did not leave the store without
some other little goodies!!
Fabric for my stash...


And this little doily.


I just l-o-v-e little things like this!

You see what shopping for
ONE sheet got me???

  1. Wonderful sheets!! Quick question for you about this as I've wanted to start looking into some vintage sheet quilting myself...How do you know the sheets are vintage at the thrifts? Is it just that they "look" vintage? I know what looks vintage but I'm not always sure that it actually is. Also, I've heard not to quilt sheets because of the damage the needle does to the threads of the sheet. How do you go around this?

  5. These blue prints coordinate nicely with your avocado green prints. It's great that you found sheets that fit your existing collection so well.
