No Longer a WIP

I was able to take my vintage sheet quilt along with me to my sisters house this past week. I sewed my binding on here at home at the very last minute....so last minute that i finished sewing as we were walking out the door to drive away. Chris and the kids were already in the car. I wanted to have some hand sewing to do while i was there. My kids all but abandon me when we are in VA because their cousins are way more fun than me...so a mom has to have something to do!! I washed it today and put it out in the sun to dry...i love how it smells fresh out of the sun.
Many thanks to my little quilt displayers...despite their groaning and complaints that it was too heavy!! Trust me, it isn't! This is the first quilt that i have made that i have actually slept a night under. It is not more than lap size but perfect for a warm night....my feet hang out and stay cool. I love it!!!
And, i think i might have mentioned before that i was planning on using it as a picnic blanket but now that it is done i love it so much... I am not sure that i can let it be so used and possibly so dirty!! What am i to do?

It turned out FANTASTIC!!! It's really hard to make a picnic quilt! That's why I think I'm going to start using the boys old clothes to do it. It will be old denim and old pants and shirts that I think it's already been dirty before.:) That's my theory -we'll see.:) Looks GREAT!!!

I love it. I can't believe how similar, yet still unlike the one I made yours is. So pretty!

I love this quilt. It is fantastic! I have a stack of vintage sheets that is just waiting to be hacked up. Such a summer-y look. I need to get at it. :)

It's gorgeous!
I was visiting from the Quilt Festival, and I just had to search out the quilt from your header. I am a huge fan of vintage linens.
