Dream On

6.13.2012

Two charm packs are perfect for making a baby quilt or lap quilt. I made this one was made using Dream On.

I like simple patchwork and simple quilting. It's timeless. 


When I found this vintage sheet at the thrift store a few weeks ago, I knew it would be perfect as the backing for this quilt. 


I used the new thread I bought at Country Stitchin' last weekend. It's YLI Variations and the color is Meadow. Very nice thread!


 Up next is this Nine Patch. I began to quilt it yesterday, but didn't like how it was going. I'll be spending part of today ripping out the stitches and starting over. =)

  12. I love your fabrics! And I love vintage, shabby chic style sheets. I pick them up at thrift stores when I can. Are they harder to quilt through, though? Quilt books try to discourage using sheets for backings. What is your experience, Amy?

    The Dream ON is truly so sweet & love the vintage sheet backing! And the quilting is perfect!!

    Hope you have a better time with your nine patch. There is nothing more frustrating than that! I'd say pop in a good old movie, settle in and rip away! Look forward to seeing how you finish it!
