One Finished Vintage Sheet Quilt Top

I am very pleased to show off my finished vintage sheet quilt top. What do you think??

My boyfriend took this first picture for me, he didn't tell me that my bun was poking out of the top (and this was the best of a bad bunch, bless him!)

The quilt is in a chequerboard pattern, I had originally planned to make the whole thing out of mini 5" squares but I ran out of some patterns of fabric so I had to change my plan, I am pleased with the end result.

I bought a number of fat quarters from the lovely Vintage Sheet Addict shop on Etsy. The rest are sheets that I have picked up from charity shops and jumble sales along the way. I just love the bright colours and bold floral patterns of sixties and seventies fabric. You can also see the rather lovely vintage wedding dress that I recently bought, it will soon be listed in my etsy shop, as will the ever growing collection of pyrex which is seems to be taking over my little shelving unit.

Now I just need to decide on some backing fabric and get basting, which I have to admit is my least favourite part of quilting, although I do love seeing it all come together in the end.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Anna, I think this is one of the nicest vintage sheet quilt tops I've ever seen, I love the chequered board design! Well done, and thank you for letting me know about it, I love seeing what people have made when they've purchased a little parcel from me! :) x

    1. Thank you very much! I am pleased that you like it! :D

  2. I really love this quilt Anna. I really like the fact that the colours were obviously really wild originally, but now they're more muted. It's so pretty.

  3. Looks beautiful Anna, well done.

  4. Gorgeous quilt! The bun picture made me giggle!

  5. Fantastic vintage fabrics give a fantastic quilt. Congratulations!

  6. So pretty and cute.
