happy days


Just finished hand-stitching the binding down - very late last night. This 30" by 30" Happy Days quilt is a birthday gift to myself ; ) I used Hobbs 80/20 batting and am curious to see how much it will shrink up after washing.

Thank you Evelyn, for providing the vintage sheets - they're so cheerful, just lovely.

We're having a a few red-letter days here in Norway, this week and next, and people are having some extra time off. Wish you all a nice weekend!

Happy Birthday!! One way to make sure you get something you like is to do it yourself. The vintage sheets really make the quilt special. The scary thing for me when I see people using vintage sheets is that I actually remember owing some of those prints. I guess that makes me vintage too!

A lovely fresh, vintage modern look.

And Happy Birthday to you!
