A thrifty find!
While browsing through my local charity shop yesterday, I found these brilliant purple retro daisy single bed sheets for a measly six dollars! Yay! They will make perfect backing fabric for my vintage squares quilts and save me heaps, another thrifty bargain. One is a little faded, but I don't think that is going to worry me at all. I am about a third of the way through quilt top number two, it will be similar, but not the same as the first.
I am loving this rediscovery of my sewing hobby which has been lying dormant for a couple of years. Scrap booking took over, because I love the instant results of a 12 x 12 inch page, where a quilt can take months, even years, to complete. So patchwork is back in vogue at Summerleigh, although scrapping will still be ongoing.
Watch this space.
