vintage sheets baby quilt

4

I am very excited to say that a couple of weeks ago I sold my first quilt!

It was the least expensive recycled vintage sheets quilt  and was sold to a lovely Lady here in Australia. Upon receiving it she said she loved it and left me a fantastic review at my shop. 

Then……. yesterday I sold my Down Under Aussie Animals Quilt to someone in the US!……. Very exciting :) I posted it straight away! I hope it gets there in one piece.  

So now I wait …..  and hope the Buyer loves it as much as all you lovely people out there have liked it.   Thank you  :)

Ages and ages ago can’t even remember how long  I made this quilt top out of recycled vintage sheets. Today I backed it with a recycled chenille bed spread and made my first ever plastic template so I could mark the squares ready for some free motion quilting.  Still loving all that throat space in my  new Janome but managed to sew a few wonky petals anyway. Bugger!  Overall it wasn’t too bad. I think I’m too impatient and just want to go too fast. I need more practise :)
