Vintage Baby!

 I participated in the Flickr's Vintage sheet swap a while ago. (well right before I moved) Anyway, I sent 80 fat quarters and got 80 back! I've been chomping at the bit to make some vintage sheet quilts so FINALLY I whipped up a baby quilt. I plan on making A LOT more of these (especially since I have SO MANY vintage sheet fqs)! I'd like to have one for each bed in the house for the summer months.
This one is going to a fellow Navy wife here in Point Mugu who's daughter is turning one. I had lots of fun going through some of my fat quarters and picking out some bright, cheery prints for a one year old girl. This measures 46"x46" and is backed with some IKEA fabric.


  1. It is really beautifull!! Especially the collors. Did you quilt it by hand or with the machine?? It is so sweet of you to give it away!


  2. That is so cute. And that IKEA fabric looks a little familiar. Oh, wait, you sent me an awesome scrap of that very fabric. Love.It.

  3. Sweet and cheerful and beautiful - nice work, Jen!

  4. LOVE IT! at first glance I thought you used Dream On by Urban Chicks for Moda. the vintage sheets are really cool lookin, makes me wish that I would of taken part on the swap.

  5. you did an awesome job! i love vintage and this is just perfect! what a sweetie you are for making this as a gift!
