Vintage Sheet Row Quilt

I've been on a bender.

On Saturday nights, you can find me on the bad side of town, jonesing for a fix.

Everytime I score, it just makes me want another.

(Yes, I've been watching a lot of Breaking Bad lately)

No, I'm not doing anything illegal, but you could call me a junkie.

I have an addiction...

to vintage sheets!

pretty fabrics

More vintage sheet goodness!

So awesome, right?

And I've been snapping up every one I can find.

You see, my friend is having a baby. A girl! (Is it just me, or is everyone having a girl right now?) And she has some awesome vintage taste. So I started snapping up vintage sheets and thought they'd made a pretty cool quilt for her little one.

Please ignore that awful crease down the center. I've had it done for a week and it's just been sitting folded up in my closet--way to be on top of the blogging!

This is the first thing I've quilted on my new machine and I think I still need to work out a few kinks. The tension was really hard to set. But it worked out.

But I still have a lot of sheets. A LOT. I'm sure there will be more vintage goodness to come!

I'll be linking up here.
