Vintage Sheet Quilt #4: Orange and Green



I've been busy lately. While I've been featuring other things on the blog, I've been working on my Etsy quilt orders in the background. I finished this quilt a few weeks ago and I'm finally getting a chance to share it with you.



I love the mix of colors in this quilt!



One of the nice things about using all vintage sheets is that, most of the time, the colors all match. For some reason, they seem to have used all the same colors when they were making these sheets. I'm not complaining, though, because it makes it so easy to combine them!

I'll show you another one in a few days. :)

So pretty! I too love how most vintage sheets seem to come in the same colors. Very convenient! ;)

I love that! I love the colors and I love how you quilted it! The variety in quilting breaks up the fact that it's just squares and makes it look fancy!!

It looks beautiful, what did you use on the back of it?

Rie,

I use all white sheets for my quilt backings. I choose the highest-quality ones I can get, with a nice, smooth finish. (I read online that sheets have a higher thread count than muslin.)

Thanks!
