Vintage Linens Quilt Top

Just wanted to share a little project that I have been working on.  I have been collecting vintage bed linens for some time now and many have a hole or rip here or there so I decided to cut some up and create a quilt.
The little block with the birds and the word "HERS" has been my favorite pillow case for some time now but it had a worn spot that ripped but happy to use it on this quilt.

For the pillow cases with the lace trim I had to sew on some extra fabric under the lace and then cut out my block.

I was so excited when I found the vintage sheet with the sweet little ballerina's on it.

Cant' wait to get this one finished.  Just need to quilt it now.  I have enought of one of the sheets that I used for the blocks to use for the backing.

I think it's a fun quilt!

Raspberry Ripple

Wow, it's been a long time since I have posted.  Just life happening and no stampin' going on around here for a while.  The new 2012-2013 catalog will be out on June 1 and I have had a chance to get a few new items including the new In-Colors that I would like to show you.

I think my favorite new In-Color (so far) is Raspberry Ripple.  

The three strips of cardstock on this card are (left to right) Cherry Cobbler, Raspberry Ripple, and Rose Red.  I used coordinating Stampin' Write Markers to color the butterflies from the Kindness Matters stamp set.  I also used the new Apothocary Accents Framelits, Elegant Bouquet embossing folder, and Pretty Postage stamp set.

Will be posting the individual cards featuring the new In-Colors over the next few days.

There are many items in the current catalog that are retiring so if there is something you really love you will want to check out the link on the side bar and see what is Going, Going.... Gone!
