Vintage Sheet Quilt

I decided on Thursday afternoon that I was going to make a lap quilt for DD's Godmother!!

She is a lady of the old school, who goes to bed by 10pm and she's always up at 6am. But lately she's been waking at 3am and going downstairs where she dozes in her armchair. So the quilt will be something cosy to pull over herself to keep warm.

I decided to use the fabrics that I received from OhFransson's Vintage Sheet Patchwork Swap.
I also added a couple of length of broderie anglaise trim.

It was made simply with 8" finished size blocks, it was sewn together inside out and then turned out (I don't know if there is a technical quilting name for this!) so I didn't have to sew on binding, and then quilted simply.

I was posted so that hopefully it will reach her in time for Mothers' Day on Sunday.
