This is my first quilt. It's 100% machine sewn and made completely out of vintage sheets and the batting is made from an old mattress protector of ours (so i know it's not grody)

The back is a vintage Flannelette sheet and the binding is also made of a sheet. I really like the contrast between the purple binding and yellow backing.

I also embroidered a square on each row of the Quilt, Just going around the existing pattern.

I'll post a few of the embroidered squares here, the rest of them are on my blog if interested, the address is my signature.

Thanks for looking! I'm going to give this to my Sister in Law who just found out she is pregnant!
