Over Christmas break I was able to finish up my dresden quilt.
It was made with the help of the lovely ladies in my Bee Vintage VQB group and it only took me from September 'til now for it to get finished. It's a miracle! :)
Isn't it so pretty? I made it a twin size, so it will reside on my daughter's bed after her big sister moves out of their shared room. Oh, happy day! I have visions of a girly, vintage-y, pink and white cottage-y room for her. In my head it's going to be fabulous...
I chose to add grey sashing as opposed to white because I wanted to give it a bit of a modern flair. While I'm fully aware this is not a "modern" quilt, I felt like the grey updated the sheets a bit while still retaining the vintage charm. Thus, modern. In my eyes it worked out perfect.
I love what she chose to do.
The binding came from my LQS. I bought it as a stash piece not realizing it worked with the quilt until it sat on my cutting table for a few days. Then...light-bulb! (name that movie)
I think it has a Monet look to it, don't you?!
For some reason I think I might have had this sheet as a kid. Mom, Renae??
Have a great week!
