Hooray for me, I finished my vintage sheet quilt this week! I so love it. And I love that all the girls in the swap have quilts that look so similar. A quilt family if you will. :)
I want the quilt to be useful for a long time - keeping in mine that my tall girl will outgrow her narrow 6 foot vintage bed in a few years time. I slept on it till I left home at 19 but my feet stuck out thru the ornate foot of the bed. I loved the bed too much to even think about a different bed tho. We'll eventually get Tassy a king single bed when she has outgrown this one, which will be about 30cm longer and 30cm wider than her current bed. I made the quilt extra long and wide. Quilting was quite an effort and I was surprised that my arms ached from lifting and pushing the quilt thru the sewing machine LOL. But it was worth it!
