I have always loved quilts and I have always wanted to be a quilter. I love the look and the history of old quilts. The problem is, I am not a quilter. I made my husband this T-shirt quilt last year, but I’m embarrassed to say, I still haven’t finished it. I can totally do the piecework, but after that I’m completely out of my element.
You all know about my fabric addiction, well I have recently begun collecting vintage sheets. I didn’t have a plan for them, I just knew I loved them and I figured I’d incorporate them into a project at some point.
But imagine my sheer elation when I came across this beautiful quilt made out of vintage sheets!
The quilter behind this beauty (literally!) is Jeni from In Color Order. She made this Vintage Sheet Quilt using fabric from her own collection of vintage sheets (which she also sells in her Etsy shop). Just look at her beautiful assortment.
My little collection looks really sad compared to hers :( But it’s a start. Maybe by the time I amass a collection like hers, I will have learned how to quilt!
Ok, so as if you’re not already impressed by her awesome quilt, can I just tell you that Jeni is a senior in college? Yah, college. I feel so inadequate. She’s quilting up a storm and I’ve finally just mastered the art of sewing in a straight line! But seriously, she’s cute as a button and she’s got mad quilting skills! So go check out her blog and her shop.
So on my long list of To-Do’s is to learn to quilt. Do any of you quilt? Any other vintage sheet collectors out there?
