A trio of vintage sheet quilts...

This is my vintage bee quilt, but it's really difficult to photograph.
Also to be honest, I dropped the ball with this one.
I found some fabric I really liked and put blocks of it
with the pieced blocks, but it's pretty busy
and although I liked it, once it was quilted
the blocks don't sing.
I really should have chosen fabric that contrasted better.
I feel kinda bad because my friends made these blocks.

This quilt has auditioned before!
I just love it so much.

and this is one of my experiments with rectangles.
I was kinda obsessed with them for a while there.

This is my favourite block in the Bee Quilt,
it's what inspired me to work on my dresden plates.

This is one of my favourite blocks,
I just love squares, I have mentioned this before I know.

Hmm but I do love flying geese too.

And this, this is just lovely.

I want to make another one of these.
I'm sorry, I wish I could remember where I found the pattern for this.
I actually think I might have to do the Pinterest thing
just so I know where to credit the things I make.
Anyone on Pinterest want to send me an invite??

It doesn't really matter if these aren't perfect,
they are still fantastic for snuggling under on a cold day.

And isn't that what we make quilts for anyhow?
Oh yes it is!
Even the wonky ones keep us warm!

I was thinking I should do a post of where all the quilts are at the moment
before the weather warms up and we start putting some of them away!


  1. I'm new to Pinterest, but I can try to figure out the invite thing!
