My mail feels like fabric

My vintage sheet fat quarters from Evelyn.
I am on the counter.
I shouldn't be.
Vintage sheets.

Fat quarters.

In the mail.

I squealed when Marshall told me a package had arrived and "felt like fabric".

When Evelyn from Use the Loot posted she would be putting packages of vintage sheet quarters in the mail (21 fit into my envelope! Wow!) for $15 including shipping, I was super excited. I asked Evelyn for yellows, oranges, and greens in florals and checks. And one checked blue if she had it! She selected these beautiful sheets for me. Thanks Evelyn! I love them! I am planning a vintage sheet nine-patch quilt with these. I have it in my head, now I just need to get started.

I've been collecting sheets for a while, and I have enough that I've joined a fat quarter vintage sheet swap. Katie over at See Katie Sew is running the swap this year. I can send one, or I can send up to eighty. Phew! That would be a lot of vintage sheets.

Eighty is a lot. I don't need eighty. Right? Excuse me while I go count my sheets...


  1. hi angie,

    thanks for the book tip. the book seems very nice. I think i will order it.

  2. I love that photo! Thanks again for "shopping" my stash, and for blogging about it! Can't wait to see what you make with these! :-)

  3. Score! I love vintage sheets too and have found some stellar ones in my local thrift shop. Just seeing yours makes me want to go there now and start rummaging.
