Vintage Sheet Baby Quilt


Just a little, sweet, simple baby quilt made with my favorite vintage sheets. These are 6 inch squares, all with a watercolor theme. I cannot describe how soft and inviting this quilt is.


I wanted to do minimal quilting on this one in order to keep the super soft texture of the fabrics. I decided to do straight-line stitches 1/4" on either side of the seams.

The back is a soft white vintage sheet, too!

The binding is a periwinkle blue fabric - the only fabric in the quilt that is not vintage.

For the label, I wrote directly on the backing with fabric marker. Simple.

I love this quilt so much. I've already cut about 80 squares to make another one (throw sized) to keep. With all the florals, I have a feeling my husband won't steal this one from me! :)

Two more baby quilts have also been completed... photos coming once they are delivered to their new homes.
