But I'm going to make a smaller, wall-size quilt. I needed (18) 10" x 10" layer cake squares and (36) 5" x 5" charm squares. I recently (and boldly) began cutting up my vintage sheets. Here are the ones I pulled for the quilt... I LOVE them! I don't usually show fabrics like this, but vintage sheet lovers will appreciate the eye-candy, right??
The remains... I'm pretty sure that I see a few more vintage sheet quilts in my future. ;-) My family won't use them (they have issues with "used" sheets, so maybe the quilts will end up in my Etsy shop. or hanging on the wall. Who knows??
Junior is already shocked that I'm planning to take over his mancave when he leaves for college in two years and turn it into a giant longarm room. He thought I was joking until I fully described the future of what he thought was "his stuff" in "his" room. Some chalk painted furniture, new flooring and wall paint, my longarm, a seating area, large cutting table, etc.... Wow, I have lots of plans!! If he wants to go away, do I need to keep his stuff in there as a shrine?? Nope....OK...off to do some school work. Happy Quilting!
