Although I love it, I had the hardest time cutting into my stash of vintage sheets. Every time I chose a print to cut, I had to think long and hard about whether I'd like to use the sheet on a bed or sacrifice it for the little quilt.
You see, I have this dream of having a little cottage on a lake that will be chock full of old, pretty things. Each bedroom will have no less than two twin wrought iron beds, neatly tucked with vintage floral sheets and handmade quilts.
It will be bright and sunny and have creaky, wooden floors, perhaps even whitewashed. The rooms will have candy colored dry sinks with huge enamel pitchers filled with flowers from the garden. There will be reading corners with overstuffed pillows and an assortment of my favorite picture books...
There will be trails of sand leading to wet swimsuits that hang from crystal doorknobs...
It's a reoccurring dream and it makes me happy.
Oh, how I ramble....
Soooo lovely! I love vintage sheet quilts! I'd have to have a think before cutting into them too.
Can I come visit your dream cottage?? It sounds just lovely :)
your quilt looks very soft! Love that striped sheet, very pretty! Your dream cottage sounds amazing!
I love this quilt and have linked to this post on my blog. I am currently hosting a Vintage Sheet FQ swap for Australians and thought they might be inspired by your gorgeous quilt.
This is so pretty! I can totally picture this quilt in your dream cottage. I especially love those reading corners. Great job putting this one together.
gorgeus! i love the vintage look!
Can I have your quilt and come and live in your house, Oh and can we have one at the beach too! Please ;-)
this is an amazing and perfect dream...this quilt is gorgeous. i am working on several vintage projects right now....your quilting is awesome
yes, this cottage of yours sounds lovely.
Erica, your quilt turned out beautifully - I adore it. I actually have some of the same sheets as you used! And I certainly understand how hard it is to cut into them...I have only managed to cut up one from my stash and that's because it had paint on it! :o( And I use a lot of them on the beds.
Wow, your dream cottage sounds just like mine...have you been in my dreams? LOL!!! I'm a cottage girl through and through...my house is decorated in the cottage style, but I still want an actual cottage! LOVE!!!!
Another adorable baby quilt from you! I was inspired by you and made a square-patch table top quilt for my friend's birthday. It was a lot of fun, but I like yours better, haha!
This is lovely! I've really been wanting to try making a quilt and this one is just so inspiring!
Oh my goodness - that is the most wonderful dream. Book me for a visit :)
Lovely quilt - all those happy sheets. It looks so nice to snuggle under.
What a beautiful quilt - it will be most at home in your lovely little dream cottage.
The story of your dream of a once and future house by the lake is as lovely as the quilt that inspired it! Love it. Love it.
beautiful!!! I want one of my own, and your deam cottage sounds amazing. I have my aunt on a hunt for vintage sheets for me, yay!
sounds delightful. i do so love your little vintage quilt.
The quilt is beautiful. I know it was hard to cut into your stash, but it sure looks worth it to me. Your dream cottage sounds delightful - and, achievable.
It's a beautiful ramble--feel free to take me there, anytime!
I totally get it... we daydream, therefore we quilt. It's beautiful, and will be way more awesome in your future cabin by the lake than some old sheets...
I just love it! I am working on my very fist patchwork quilt. Really my first quilt ever. I am a new follower and would love for you to visit me @ www.mommiesandbeyond.com
your "someday" cottage sounds lovely. I have that same dream. :) Your quilt will go perfectly in that room
oh, it's so pretty! I just love the soft colors and cottage-y feel of this!
i'd love to come live in your dream. it sounds wonderful
Love it! Looks so soft!
This is LOVELY...
