Vintage Blues WIP

I have been slowly amassing a stash of vintage sheets for re-purposing. Today, I dove into this lovely blue assortment to cut out pieces for a quilt.
This is what I have so far...
and you can see there's some carpet showing where I need to put a couple more pieces, but I've used every blue sheet or pillowcase I've collected.
You do know what this means? I will *have* to go thrifting again soon. ;o)

  1. We had duvet covers made of this kind of material, back as kids in the 1970s. Thank you for bringing it back to life! x

  7. Love the vintage fabrics! I bought a role of worn and washed fabrics at the quilt fair yesterday. Everything is cut, all I have to do is start the sewing-machine and sew the pieces together!
