Emily's Vintage Sheet Quilt
You may remember this picture above from the post Jessica wrote over a month ago when she was making baby quilts from vintage sheets. Soon after, the two of us got together and pieced a twin-size quilt for Emily's bed.
Let me tell you, I love, love, love this quilt, and I wish we had made it big enough for my bed! Well, then, poor Emily wouldn't have a quilt for her bed, so it's best that it's only twin-sized. :)
I have a wonderful neighbor-friend who has a long-arm quilting machine, and today she finished quilting the top for me. The quilting is absolutely beautiful! Debbie does fabulous work, and I recommend her highly if you ever need some quilting done. Debbie has another quilt top of mine that she plans to quilt soon--I'll post pictures of it when I get it back.
Now, all that is left to finish Emily's quilt is to bind the edges. Hopefully I'll start and complete the binding tomorrow, and then I'll be back with more pictures.
What do you think? Should I keep collecting vintage sheets so that I can make one for my own bed, or is one vintage sheet quilt enough? :)
