Happy Thursday! I have a finished quilt to share with you all today, and thankfully it's a cheerful one!

The pattern for this quilt can be found in Issue 84 of Love, Patchwork & Quilting Magazine, which is on newsstands now! I made this quilt back at the tail end of last summer, and it was so fun to work on.

Side note, I can't believe the magazine is already on it's 84th issue! Before it was a monthly magazine it was quarterly, and I contributed to the first issue, Spring 2013. Amazing how fast time flies!

The quilt is made completely from vintage sheets from my stash, which gives it an extra soft look and feel. I used eight different sheets for the star points and four different lighter sheets for the background.

It was fun to make another star quilt from vintage sheets, this quilt is my fifth one! Here are a few other ones I've made: Sparkling Cider Vintage Sheet Quilt, Starry Mini Quilt, Giant Vintage Star Throw Quilt, Giant Vintage Star Baby Quilt + Pillow.

Love the good quilt wrinkle. As soon as I received the quilt back from the magazine, I threw it in the wash. I love the look of a freshly washed quilt. That little bit of shrink and crinkle from the dryer is the best. I find it especially nice for vintage sheet quilts. They feel instantly worn in and soft.

The backing and binding are also vintage sheets. I picked the backing quickly but had a hard time picking a binding. I ended up going with a bright green sheet that had a lot of other colors in it too, to pull it all together.

Happy Quilting!

The quilt looks great. I have some back issues where you are featured, but don't have this issue 84 and they are sold out (that's a good thing) any idea how I can get a hold of this issue? Are you featured in issue 85 (85 is in-stock)? Thanks for sharing. FYI I made your pretzels and popcorn (in a bag) they both turned out really well.

Fat Quarter Shop still has copies of Issue 84:

I'm not in 85, just 84! :)

Yay, I'm glad!!

This is lovely! Do you ever have issues with quilting these vintage sheet quilts? Could you maybe write about this sometime? I hear from a lot of long armers that they dislike quilting them...I gather they are hard on their machines. This has caused me to avoid using them...but they are so lovely.

I don't! I have a post all about sewing and quilting with them, you can find it here:
