Vintage Sheets

I have been collecting vintage sheets like everyone else these days. I finally made a quilt out of some of them. I wanted something to practice with on the quilting frame. I have not used it that much and sometimes just practice on a sheet or piece of fabric doesn't do it. So I made this quilt and figured if I messed it up it wouldn't matter. I so love how this quilt came out. Not all the sheets in there are vintage but most of them. It is so nice and soft and cuddlie (not a word I guess but it works). I put a sheet on the back too, not vintage but a nice soft cotton sheet. I am so sold on the idea of making quilts out of sheets. I hope to make another one in the near future. I am also getting some Un-done projects DONE! I have a few more to go then I will start another sheet quilt I think. Oh who am I kidding I will have 4 or 5 going before I know it. How about you? Ever made a quilt out of sheets?

Beautiful! I have never made a complete quilt out of sheets, but I have used sheets for the backing. Currently, I am making a comforter for a customer using plain sheets and I am appliqueing a simple design on for her, per her request. It has got me to thinking about using sheets to do some future quilts though!

Oh that looks so soft and comfy. Love the soft colors.
Only sheets I have used in quilts is for backing.
