Another little baby quilt project~

Another little baby quilt done!

I have a friend who was expecting her 2nd grandchild, first girl on January 6th. She is very thrifty and very frugal and for some reason I just felt like this type quilt would suit her and her new grandbaby very well.

I used an assortment of my favorite vintage sheets, with a little help from Sam~
it seemed to come together very quickly. He quickly let me know it would do fine, without missing a beat!~ I used a soft minky type fleece on the back my favorite part of it all is the dainty fabric I used for binding. I just love it!
I actually had an ulterior motive for doing this quilt, I thought I could include one of my dresses I made last summer or this one. There is no sense letting these sit around when there is a little girl soon to be big enough to wear them!
So, off they go. I used Elizabeth’s (from Oh Fransson) idea/instruction for making the quilt top, quilting the top then add the minky backing. You then bind the traditional way. I can’t wait to give it to my friend!

Thrift store finds, vintage jammies….

Vintage sheets are my obsession lately.  I have been picking them up at my gw and junior league shops.   I love the Butterick 3314 and have been busy making some jammies. Fun!

On another note, I picked this little gem up at the gw. I love it. I am not sure if it is really Le Crueset or not, but it does say “made in France” with an “18″ stamped next to the “made in France”.

Does anyone know? No matter, because I only paid $5.99 for it, and with all the Teflon talk going on, we have been using our cast iron pots more often then not. This will go nicely with our collection. I think it was a steal of a deal!
