Vintage Sheet Quilt Block Tutorial

I had a few requests for the pattern I used for my Vintage Sheet Quilt.


Vintage Sheet Quilt


The block / pattern was quite popular in blog land at the time I started this quilt.

I don't remember who or where I saw the block.. But it's super easy to sew!

I've done up quick instructions for making a 8" block. {see below}

I also have a PDF over in my Craftsy Pattern Store if you'd like to make the quilt, but don't want to do the math.

The PDF {$5} contains the BLOCK instructions, MATERIAL requirements, and CUTTING instructions for a BABY quilt and a TWIN size quilt.

Thanks for loving my Vintage Sheet Quilt... It is one of my favorites! {makes me want to start collecting vintage sheets again!}

I love the look of this quilt and will have to try the block out with a sample of vintage sheet stash. I too am visiting via Pretty by Hand, glad I stopped by. I have so many vintage sheets I know I will never get through them all - so at the moment I'm offering some up for a swap on my blog.

I love vintage sheet quilts. If you increased the square size to 5" & the side strips to 5" & 9" you could use charm squares and a jelly roll for this pattern :) That's going into my "future easy project" file :)
Smiles, DianeM
