Most of my vintage sheets are 6" squares. I am also lucky to have a few bigger pieces.
I wanted to use them to their maximum - and decided to try a quilt-as-you-go wall size!

The first picture shows the vintage linens I wanted to include in the quilt. I started placing the center piece and quilt it. Second round came together quickly. Third row followed. By now, I had used 4 of my 6 vintage pieces. And the decisions on how to proceed got harder.
This is where I am now, testing out the final round of prints and solids. It will be framed in white and end at about 60" by 85".
