The Happy Dance Grand Finale...(or part # 6 if you're still counting...)

Do you remember the quilt I'm making from blue vintage sheets? Then you also know that I've been searching for that one missing piece so I can finish it...

Guess what? I have the 'missing piece'! Yay! It arrived here thanks to my friend, Roxanne. Just look at the vintage beauties she sent me in her swap package. Now, not only will I be able to finish my first vintage sheet quilt, but I have what I need for my second one ( a pink and yellow quilt).
Along with the vintage sheet pieces, Roxanne also included these lovely handmade cards and tags (she's trying to woo me into starting another hobby... paper crafts... and I tell you, the temptation is getting too much to resist when I see such inspiration from her).
Did you happen to notice the vintage piecework beauty in the middle of the handmade paper craft delights? Roxanne discovered this charmer while out thrifting and she said she knew I would love it ...
and boy, was she right! There's the softness of the cotton fabric, its sweet pattern and then how can I not admire the teeny, tiny hand-stitching that put it all together. Love it!

Thank you so much, Roxanne!

  8. You are making it in such beautiful colours, Kathrine...I adore pastels and the fact that it's vintage makes it even better...

    How lucky you are to have a friend who can support you with the missing piece ;0)
