Vintage Sheet Quilt

I've been wanting to make a quilt, for myself, using vintage squares, for a long time. I finally managed to accomplish it! :) Bought vintage sheets @ Good Will and bought the backing sheet from Etsy. I love that sheet! Rick and I had one, until last year, that we had received for a wedding present. :)

This is what I started out with last Monday. A pile of sheets and some gumption to start tearing strips of material and cut a bunch of 9 inch squares.



A nice pile of 9” squares.



On Tuesday, I had a major fight with my brand new sewing machine.  I won’t go into all the details, but suffice it to say I was verrrrry upset and frustrated with the thing.  Thankfully, on Wednesday, I was able to get it to cooperate…and this is the end result of that day.



During the course of the next few days, this is what transpired.  I am thrilled with the results!

And some close up shots of both:




And in case you’re wondering…there is no middle layer.  I am hot pretty much all of the time.  So I generally just cover up with a sheet folded in half.  Figure this will be the same thickness, but look a lot prettier!  :D


  1. OOO love it! We must have been in the same mood! I have some sheets like that I may need to dig them out and try this. Thanks for sharing..Looks so cozy.

  2. It's so cute! I like the just-sheet idea, sounds perfect for a summer nap :)
