I have been having a great time helping Morgan (The Crafty Squirrel) create some fabulous projects using her collection of vintage sheets. Morgan has been collection Vintage sheets for years and thats why she has such a fabulous collection to work with.

The first two project were of course quilts!
Vintage Chevron Quilt Kit.
The finished quilt will measure approx. 60” x 72” (152cms x 183cms)
This kits includes all the fabric, already pre-cut for to get sewing straight away including binding 
and the pattern.

Vintage Circles and Squares Quilt Kit.
The finished quilt will measure approx.: 152cms x 178cms (60" x 70").
All the fabric is precut in this quilt too. The circles already have fusible webbing attached 
to the back of the circles so you can start straight away.

The circles in this quilt have been stiched down using the raw edge applique method.
I then did some hand quilting in maching colours using perle 8 cotton.

Robyn Muller: Brilliant stuff! And really good for people who have trouble cutting the fabric for whatever reason. They can have a lovely decorator piece with the most frustrating (in my opinion) part of the job already done. :)

Helen F: Emma would you believe I still have "TWO" sets of those sheets from sheriden in the yellow/orange designs. I bought them for my "glory box" back in 1972!!!!
