A Custom Quilt in Stripes ~ Part 1

[workinprogress]


I love working with these reclaimed vintage striped bed linens and jumped at the opportunity to make a custom order quilt.  The quilt top is based on this previously made pillow cover also featuring stripes and the same alternating layout.


I have combined the reclaimed striped bed linens with numerous standard quilting cottons, including stripes in varying widths from:


A simple design, allowing the fabric to take center stage.  Easy, no mess, piecing.  


It's been a good sewing week ... with more to come.
