IC#22- Vintage Sheet Baby Quilt

We were challenged this week to work on a UFO, unfinished object.  Basically, any project you had been hoarding for a long time without finishing.  Well, I have been gathering fabric for this quilt since before we started trying to have a baby.  I knew that if I ever had a little girl I would make her a quilt out of vintage sheets.  This week, it happened.  I finally made my quilt.  It was my first quilt but it went well.  I'm really proud!!  What do you think?

I found this blog to be a really helpful resource.  I used this as a guide for the entire quilting process.

I used this technique for finishing the edges.  The thought of cutting separate binding strips felt overwhelming so I just folded over some of the backing fabric.

  1. Your first quilt?! Well, now I'm even more impressed.

  2. Wow Jenny! This looks really great! Your little one is so lucky to have a special quilt made by her mommy :)

  3. Wow, that looks like a pretty difficult thing for your first time! Great job!

  4. Wow, wonderful job! I love the idea of using vintage sheets.

  5. It looks fabulous! Vintage sheets are so pretty and I'm sure the little one will feel so cozy when she's snuggled under her mama-made quilt!
