When deciding on a quilt style for her I knew Vintage Sheets would be the way to go. She is a girl who loves old style. (Her dream car is a beat up 1940's style Pick-up truck.)
After seeing this quilt I knew I could replicate it beautifully in real vintage.
the swap last year.
It's pretty amazing, in that every time I do a vintage sheet project I think I've used up all the pretty ones, only to find some beautiful unused piece. It's been fun discovering new lovelies.

You can see that I added a small piece of backing fabric in with it. I think it's a great little touch!
The backing is another $5/yd sale piece I found at my LQS. I am loving the vintage/modern vibe that it's giving off.
My girls have loved this quilt! So much so, that they want to have their room re-decorated in this style. Wouldn't that be cute?! It would make a cheery room, for sure.
To Miss B the Babysitter we say Congratulations!! Our lives have been forever blessed by knowing you.

My only regret is that this quilt is on the small side, measuring 55" by 63".
