Modern Vintage Quilt

It's amazing how the choice of fabric can impact a quilt. When my sister saw a picture of the latest one that I made she asked if it was an antique. Other adjectives could be applied to it.... up-cycled, repurposed, eco-friendly.... but it was made only last week so antique is definitely not one of them. The squares were cut from vintage sheets and from a few pieces of discontinued cottons left over from previous projects. The white sashing brought it all to life and the soft green corner squares added another note of interest. The pale cotton print backing seemed the perfect choice for the muted pastels shades on the front.

Soft and pretty, this quilt would feel right at home in a shabby chic cottage environment.
