Vintage Patchwork Quilt


A throw sized quilt, made entirely of vintage linens in a variety of floral prints.




The binding on this quilt is the only thing that isn't made of vintage linens - it's a charcoal gray solid.



The backing is the blue floral fabric I found last week.

Because the vintage linens are so so so soft, I don't like to add too much quilting. I love the lightweight feel of these quilts, so I stuck with a very simple grid quilting.

I think it's just pretty.

It's beautiful! I never get tired of seeing vintage sheet quilts. :-) Love the binding - I'll have to give that a try sometime (using a darker color). It's looks fantastic!
