Vintage Sheets Rag Quilt

         My daughter introduced me to using vintage sheets in quilting.  There is so much material and you are reusing something that is so beautiful that might simply be trashed for being old. What could be better?   She pointed me in the direction of this fabulous etsy shop, Whimsie Dots, where I purchased coordinating fat quarters of what she called Reclaimed Bed Linens Fat Quarter Bundle- Sweet and Pink and Shabby Chic.  Here is what I made from my sheets:








 The feel of vintage sheets is so soft and the patterns are so lovely.  Now I am always on the hunt for vintage sheets at yard sales, estate sales and of course, etsy.
