1st Studio Project




See this pretty pile of fabric... it's going to be my first quilt project. I'm excited. But since 2 of the fabrics are vintage bed sheets I almost didn't want to cut them up. Particularly because of the old school edging I sorta wanted to keep them in tact. However, I've recently been introduced to the idea that if you don't want to let go of something just take a picture instead. So here's my picture of the original linens showing the old school edging.


Aww, so precious... now where are my scissors?!

  1. I have the same problem! I have done that with old sentimental things that I have a hard time parting with.

    But, you know what I say? Use that trim in your quilt! How cute would that be? Hand stitch it on there in some cool design -- or machine stitch it on. You could put it on something else too, like the pocket of a dress for beanie. It IS darling.

    But then again, I am the packrat.

  5. Likely--that's a good idea....I probably won't use them on this project, but for future use...there's plenty of fabric for a couple quilts.

    Em--I'll send you our emails!
