friday flimsy

A friday flimsy...


... soft pastel colors

vintage linens in 8" equilateral triangles

10 fat quarters and a pillowcase

finished at  44" by 50"

hard to catch the pale palette...

but I did catch the runaway kitty, drowsy after a visit to the vet (getting multiple shots and antibiotics)

wanting to enjoy the lovely summer day outside...


dream on, kitty... you have to stay indoors for a few days!

The vintage linens are a bit more slippery than quilting cotton when sewing them together. I found it helpful to press (with iron set on steam) the seams open as I put them together. Just love the look of these old prints. So, it's worth the extra effort...

Wish you a wonderful weekend!

ps. I have now finished my giant hex, and your right about the vintage colours, new fabrics just dont compare.
