Holy Fabric, Batman!, originally uploaded by jenib320.
My Mom and I spent the day visiting quilt shops in Ohio's Amish Country during the quilt shop hop! We managed to hit 5 shops and a few thrift shops as well. Not bad for a Saturday morning! :)

Vintage Sheet Wreath, originally uploaded by jenib320.
My scrap bin was completely overflowing with the skinny bottom hems from vintage sheets! I found a plain wreath hidden in the closet, and decided to dress it up! It was really quick and used up lots of scrap! It needs a flower or something, but I could not for the life of me get one to turn out nice! Shall have to try again! I'll be writing up a tutorial for this wreath soon, using top hems from sheets, double fold bias tape, or ribbon!
