    I've been collecting vintage sheets for some time now. Some of the prints are so fabulous I hate cutting in to them. Here is one that I've added a couple of borders to. Pieced the back and quilted it. I'm loving quilting these.

    Absolutely gorgeous! I love the colors. I also collect vintage sheets but I generally use mine to make bedspreads. The go like hotcakes so I need to start looking for more sheets.
