At Last! A long-awaited project begun.

Vintage pillowcase/sheet quilt for my husband's 91-yr-old aunt!  I've been collecting some vintage items for a while and finally got enough - even won some from Anne at Green Stitch.  Check out her blog:, it's great! 
Can you read who the pattern is from?  It's Elizabeth Hartman of Oh Fransson who so very graciously supplied this wonderful, easy-to-follow pattern with quilt cards.  The quilt is called "Clothesline Quilt."  I hope to get a lot done on it today - at this time in my life I wish my husband was a football fan.  All these years I've been thankful I haven't been married to one of those fanatics, now it might not be so bad!  Ha!
Anyway, have a wonderful long weekend, my lovelies!  (It's Labor Day weekend here in the US, in case my friends from Cyprus, the UK, and the down under aren't aware - I imagine you guys have long weekends of your own from time to time?) 
Oh, and pay close attention over the next few days - I'm planning a giveaway to celebrate the coming of autumn which will herald my first grandbaby's entrance into the world!  So stay posted...


  1. Looking food, can't wait to see the finished product!

  2. Looks like you're off to a great start!

  3. Oooh, those vintage sheets look wonderful! They make quilts so soft. I can't wait to see your finished quilt!

I love to hear from you!
