Recently I had a little show and tell of my vintage sheet quilt, Lulu's quilt. Well, the 'other' vintage quilt was completed last week...the one using the squares from beautiful Mardi's vintage fabric swap.
A little more show and tell of some of the fabrics first because they really are so lovely.
And the finished product...
The best thing for me about this quilt is the chenille backing I have used. It is so beautifully snuggly and I love that it belonged to the Mr's grandfather. The other best thing is that it is made from fabrics far and wide. I love that that they have all been shared amongst a bunch of crafty types. The other best thing is that the binding is a thrifted sheet gifted from my bestie. The other best thing is that I tried a new way of quilting-along the diagonals-so a wee bit of personal growth for me as well and the other best thing is that it was dirt cheap to make. There isn't even any batting! So it's all swapped, thrifted or gifted...everything but the thread.
Have you made your quilt from the fabric swap yet?
I would love to see it if you have.
