My latest obsession

I decided to use up my vintage sheet stash to make a new quilt for our bed. The one we currently have is on it's last leg! It's old, worn, torn, and half the batting is wadded up from years of washings.

I wanted to make something special just for us. For years we've had to share our bed with little ones and now those little ones have grown up. They're far too busy and way too cool to snuggle up with mommy and daddy anymore. This quilt will mark that new era.
Our bed is ours again and we don't have to share with anyone...

...well, except for this baby!

oh it looks great JoAnn.

I want so much to make some quilts for our children and one for Steve and I too but I am scared of not having the squares match up. I think something like a quilt makes it very obvious if you haven't sewn a straight line.

Maybe when Joseph is finally out of our bed and we have it to ourselves, I can take on the project.
