What are you making with Vintage Sheets?

I've just been checking out the blogs of people who have signed up for the Vintage Sheet Fat Quarter Swap and OH MY GOODNESS, there are some mighty talented people out there making some fabulous things from vintage sheets.

Have a look at this great quilt that Melissa has made using vintage sheets and some Amy Butler Love (and she's new to blogging too so might appreciate some visitors)...

...and this bunting over at Collecting Feathers (the "I" is some vintage boy sheeting).

And I found these vintage sheet inspirations after only visiting about 5 blogs (and there are more than 20 people signed up for the swap) - what will I discover once I've visited them all!

that 1st quilt is amazing....yea i love visiting other talented people blessd we are with technology right at our fingetips....who would have thought that when these sheets were brand new that they would live on to be created into such beauty... i wonder what tales they could tell???

I'm not really sure what I'll be making ... maybe some frocks, maybe a sunhat, maybe a picnic rug... feeling all inspired to make a quilt having just popped over to Melissa's place. So perhaps a quilt ?!?!?!
The inspiration will come when it is ready - holding the fabric, rolling in the fabric, smelling the fabric always helps.
Looking forward to the swap. How exciting :)
