I finished my string quilt this week! It's made from vintage sheets and is an unbelievably soft and snuggly quilt.
Her favorite color recently changed from pink to blue, so I used a lot of my blue sheets for her.
I don't know about you, but I can look at these fabrics for a long time... the colors and patterns are so lovely. The pastels of them all together look familiar and comforting and beautiful.
After much deliberation, I decided to back the quilt in plain white. This way, I can use whatever fitted sheets and pillowcases I like without anything clashing. And if she changes her favorite color to something other than blue, we can compliment the quilt with a different sheet. For now, she has a soft blue and white fitted sheet and some of my most favorite vintage sheet pillowcases.
Tell me - am I the only one who wishes this was my bed to climb into?! So pretty.
I also used white fabric for binding the quilt.
And made a pillow to match. : )
...Now it's time to figure out what to do with the wall above her bed. I know what I'll be looking for on Pinterest!
Thank you to all the kind ladies who helped with these blocks in the Bee Vintage sewing bee! And... if you are a collector of vintage sheets, we are just about to begin another round and still have a few spaces left!
