I'm in a Vintage Sheet Bee that has been organized by Deb in New Zealand.  


A while back I participated in a vintage sheet swap so that's how I began collecting the sheets.


Denver has a bevy of thrift stores and I have found some really nice sheets!


For this swap, we send the fabrics we want others to make our (12 1/2" sq) block from.  I chose to make the following flying geese block.  




So far I have received two sets of fabrics.  I love how the blocks turned out!!

Today I got the block Brenda made for me, I love how the two look together and can't wait till I have them all!!




Here's a little quilt (slightly smaller than a fat quarter) I made from left overs (2fer!!)

What a fun "swap/bee" you are in right now. I also love your teeny tiny "two-fer" quilt!

How fun! I love the idea of vintage sheets ... that's not occurred to me before. And those blocks are really very pretty! :)

Mel, you have quite a lovely stash of sheets! Your blocks are awesome. Can't wait to see how the quilts look when all the blocks are put together. :)

All the blocks are so pretty. I've gotten a couple of sheets from thrifts that I love, but I'm not sure what constitutes vintage. Is it a year, or the style. Any help please?

I'm smitten with vintage sheet projects. Having found only one decent sheet in my area I keep hoping to find more. Your collection is so pretty and your blocks are too.

Really love the vintage sheets. They are so fun. I'm enjoying mine but haven't used them yet.
