Hi! Today I want to share with you my Vintage Sheet Patchwork Prism Quilt! It's time to dive into summer sewing and for me, that means sewing with vintage sheets! Something about the bright florals scream summer to me. I knew it was time to create another quilt using 100% vintage sheets and the Patchwork Prism pattern by Anna Maria Horner (available here) seemed like just the thing! So, let's chat about this quilt!

How to Identify, Shop for and Sew with Vintage Sheets. A few of my favorite tips:
- Piece and quilt using 100% polyester thread (I use Gutermann Sew-all). It moves through the sheets easier, as most of them are 50/50 polyester/cotton blends.
- Use a nice sharp needle and change it often! I like to use universal 14/90 needles for most projects.
- A little extra basting goes a long way!
