Quilt Projects Done!

I finished it! What a fun and easy project this was and I used up some of my recycled sheet stash. I machine quilted it.
 I used a delicate pink stripe sheet for the binding.
 And a pretty pink rose sheet for the backing. The only thing  I had to buy was the quilt batting. It's so soft already.
  Remember the vintage hexie squares I showed you a few weeks ago? I experimented and made a mug rug.
 I guess I got kind of carried away. I love bringing new life to these pretty hexies. Aren't they cute all strung in a row?
 Each one was hand sewn and made of different fabrics. The fabrics are from the 1930's or 40's. I made little mug quilts and added a backing and batting and then machine quilted around the edges. I'll be listing these in my Etsy shop later this week, so go take a look. These would make great little gifts or stocking stuffers. I know I'll be making more of these-so fun!
 Another look at the morning glory, just about to bloom. Each day I love to look at the purple and pink flowers it gives.
Even though my mind is on fall, it still feels like summer here. I hope you have a great week ahead. Happy Labor Day!


  1. Happy Labor Day Leslie. Love your pretty quilt. The combo of soft colors is beautiful. You are so talented and did an amazing job on this and so fast!!
    Darling mug rugs too. They look amazing strung on the line. You have truly been busy. Just look at your morning glories. So beautiful.
    Enjoy the holiday and happy September. xo

  2. Thanks, Celeste. I am so glad I'm enjoying crafting again. It will be quiet around here today, but kind nice. Hope you have a great week!

  3. O, Leslie...your quilt is adorable....and I must ck out your shop for those cute mug quilts...

  4. This is beautiful! I have been collecting vintage sheets and pillow cases for years and hope to make a quilt with them someday! Love the hexies too! Have a great week!

  5. Your quilt looks soooo soft and cuddly, Leslie! You did a great job on finishing it. Your hexies are so cute. I'm amazed at how many you have done. You're so talented!

  6. I am catching up on your blog today and so happy to see the finished quilt. What a wonder you are. I am hand stitching an almost 100 year old quilt topper my great grandmother made and it is taking forever. Can't wait to see the entire Texas fall tour. :)
