Finally using my vintage sheets!

I've participated in 2 rounds of vintage sheet fat quarter swaps on Flickr over a year ago.  I was so excited about them, and then I couldn't figure out what to do with them!  So they've been sitting in a drawer, ignored and abandoned!  When I had to organize and pack stuff to move, I decided to do something about it.  I chose my favorite pieces and cut out 2 quilt tops, then the rest were mailed to another lovely blogger who will most certainly make some awesome items from them!  

So without further ado, feel free to ogle my vintage sheet version of Oh! Fransson's Mod Sampler quilt.  I've made this one before in 1930s repro prints, and I thought it would be fun to revisit in a more, well Mod, way :D  At first I was really nervous with the green sashing I'd selected, but now I totally love it!  I've been waiting so long to find the perfect project for the bold, large flowered sheet, and it will be the perfect backing.  Sigh... so adorable!
