Hello pals

Well, I needed to come check in with my friends and make sure all is well on the old bloggy-blog!

I just had to share this pretty with you!!!  I don't know if you have read my blog long, but you may remember my "Oh Sheet!" post back in September.  I was on the hunt for wild and crazy vintage sheets to make a pretty ruffly quilt - a pattern I had found on Etsy.

I shared this pattern with my friend's mom, Fern who is the quilt queen and just look at what she did!!!

I am so happy to see this finished product - although she said it was not the easiest task in the world.  Fern (left) made this for her daughter, Laura's (right) daughter. 

This is made from her grandmother's old sheets, which makes this such a special quilt! 
I really had planned to make this my "wintertime" project, but it seems I have not found the time yet. OOPS...but seeing this makes me want to get started immediately!



Pretty eh?

Oh, and if you have not visited the 52 Week Project site, we have started some fun little challenges for those who don't want to commit to the year.  Come play along if you wanna!

I love this idea, Kim. When we were children my mother let us all pick out our own sheets (I think because there were 10 of us it made laundry easier to sort). I still remember my special yellow sheets. And, to this day I have a fondness for a good linen cupboard. Thanks for the great post. Imelda

So cool! I just showed my sis your post last week to show her the ruffle quilt. I wish I could make myself make one! :)

Wow!! :) It's *stunning*!! I've been collecting sheets for a patchwork vintage sheet quilt, but how fun is this?! :) Love.

I have happened upon that quilt pattern on etsy too! It's so lovely. I have dreams about making it someday. But, I don't have that kind of attention span so it probably will never. I collect old floral bedsheets anyway....just in case.
