1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Pink flowered apron on: June 23, 2008 10:19:09 PM
I have been seeing aprons from vintage sheets around blogland. I'm not a big fan of the 1960's green and yellow, so I found a sheet with pink, red, and blue flowers. I would love to have a red kitchen, and I am slowly moving that direction.

I found the sheet as part of a twin set at an estate sale a few weeks ago. The girls could use a few more twin fitted sheets, so I picked it up and I thought it was just one piece for $2.00. It was worth it because it was a nice quality sheet. When I got to the cash box, I found out it was 50% off, so only $1.00. When I got it home, there was a flat sheet also. The sheet had a blue stripe with flowers and a smaller red stripe on the top of the sheet. The stripe made perfect pockets.

I made two matching aprons from fabric I bought at a yard sale.  I got 3 yards for $2.  I made two reversible aprons and have a little bit left over.  I think I will make these for my nieces for Christmas out of another 3 yard piece I bought at the same sale.  Thanks for looking.

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Marking quilts on: November 12, 2007 03:15:43 PM
I was wondering if you mark your quilts before or after you baste them.  Also, what do you use for marking?  I have tried several different products and still haven't found one I like (except for the leftover bar soap -- but that only works on darks).
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Towel Quilt Advice Please on: August 17, 2007 10:44:53 PM
I saw on a blog a while back a quilt made out of vintage towels.  It was made by just piecing a top and binding the edges.  Have any of you worked with terry cloth to make a quilt before?  Any hints?  I am concerned that the top may fray if it is not backed.  I do not think it needs batting, but maybe a back.  Any thoughts?  I think this sounds like a great picnic blanket and would love to make one.
