Vintage Sheet Rag Quilt (quilt #3)

Good morning everyone!!

Well so far this has started out to be a much better Monday than last week!!  Everyone seems to be pretty much back to normal.  My oldest has a little cough, but no fever and no vomiting, so I can handle that!!  .

We had a very uneventful weekend here other than the horrible wind that blew through (yes pun intended).  I did however get to go to a few garage sales and I found a few really great things, I will share those with you later this week when I get a chance to take some photos.  I will say this though, a few of the things I found I have been looking for FOREVER!!!

Now onto what I wanted to share today, I am so excited about this I was afraid to post it because it is actually going to be a gift for someone's birthday, but she won't see this until after she has recieved it so I think I'm safe.  There are a few other things that will be included in the package with the quilt, but I will post those when I show you what I found at the garage sale.



I am very disapointed with how the photos came out, my honey was holding the quilt while I was taking the photos and our 2 year old was behind him pushing on his legs.  I think he moved everytime I tried to take another photo.  So please bare with me.  I used 5 different sheets for the front and I used 1 sheet for the back.  I tried to match all of the colors that were on the back to the colors on the front.  This is a very light weight quilt so that it can be used in the spring and summer months.  I love the spring colors and all of the flowers this was alot of fun to make, the bright colors and happy prints helped get me out of my winter blues.

The photo on the right is a close up of the material that the quilt is backed with.  When everyone was sick this is what I was working on.  I started it about 2 weeks ago and finished the quilting part before everyone started showing symptoms of having a stomache bug.  I did most of my cutting on the edges last week.  So... what do yall think?  How was you're weekend?  Until next time.....................

Happy Crafting!!!

  4. You have an amazing eye and color style! I love the way you put the yellow and blue nine patches on opposite diagonal corners from each other. Love the green filling in between the main blocks. Gorgeous and the eye just follows the flow of the quilt. Beautiful job!!! What size are the squares you were working with? Did you use batting in between or something else to keep it lightweight? Love it!!!

  6. I was wondering...Did you any batting for this quilt? I made a denim without batting & it isn't very warm, now I mostly line them with flannel. I am asking because I think I am going to get into my vintage sheet stash for this!

  7. Shabby Soul,

    Yes I used batting, I found the thinnest batting I could for this one because it's more of a spring throw for my mom, but on the other one I made I used thicker batting so that it would be warmer and I actually used it most of the winter and it was very warm.

  8. It is common for an average child that experiences acne
    to scratch their faces and try to remove the lumps by themselves - natural instincts and reflexes.
    For those individuals with acne-prone skin it can be hard to find products that help get rid of acne without drying out the
    skin or causing worse problems. This will save lot of
    your money of choosing the wrong one.

  9. Would you want your idea to stand out further or let the beat dominate your
    rap. Have you ever sat back and listen to the radio or television, or maybe at a night club and
    wonder how to make rap beats.

    It does not work like that, but either way, I hear it all of the time.

  10. Well, if your acne has already progressed beyond
    the initial stage of whiteheads and blackheads and you now have pimples and scars on your face, then you have to
    do two things at the same time - get rid of pimples and get rid of acne scars.
    Hence, we prescribe you to take Brazil nuts and pumpkin seeds.
    However, it is important to remember that over and excessive
    cleaning may be counter productive and make the actual skin produce more petrol
    or sebum that will worsen acne.

  11. Using different items like ice, orange peel, aloe vera
    and toothpaste are very inexpensive and effective treatments
    you can use at home. If lemon juice tends t - о irritate уоur
    skin, then dilute іt w - іth ѕоm - е rose
    water аnd apply. The disease is not restricted to any
    particular age group; it can affect teenagers to adults up to the age of
    40.
