Work in Progress

 I've been dreaming about a vintage sheet quilt for a very long while. I have browsed patterns, tutorials, and magazines to find the right pattern for the job and I have settled on a bricks design. It seemed fitting for the fabrics and a good way to feature them without being overly complex. The quilt will be queen sized for the bed. I cut the pieces today:

I also finally got around to making these:

They are embroidery hoops in different sizes with vintage sheets showcased. I've seen them many places and wanted to try them myself. I found the hoops at a estate sale along with the sheets. The whole display cost me under $3!

Looks like I will busy at my machine tomorrow! I've got to get this quilt finished before it gets hot outside!


  1. Those sheets make beautiful art!! Bet the quilt will be just as pretty.

  2. I am sure the quilt will be beautiful, and love the embroidry hoop display.

  3. That is a good idea. I love sheets and that is a good plan on how to use them. I can't wait to see it.

  4. what a cute way to display those pieces in your room! Marla
