Awhile back I purchased some vintage sheets – some to sell as fat quarters and others to use for a few projects. I noticed in the upper corner of two sheets that a name and number were written in permanent marker. Georgia 302. Who is Georgia 302?
My only thought is that the pretty floral sheets belonged to a sweet elderly lady, named Georgia, who occupied room 302. Was the room in a convalescent hospital or in an assisted care living facility? Who was Georgia? Was she a petite little lady with curly gray hair? Did she have family who came to visit her? Was she a grandmother? What was her story? Did she love flowers? I do believe so because the sheets are as dainty and sweet as can be.
Georgia, sweet Georgia…..
your sheets are delicate and sweet. Thank you…..
To have these make me smile. I am honored.
Some of Georgia’s sheets were used for a little quilt that I made. This is a gift for a very special little girl….
…who I will share about soon.
This is my first time stippling (machine quilting) and I kind of got carried away – it was soooooooooooooooo much fun!!! The next quilt will be much larger! I am so looking forward to making another. Or….maybe even a tote bag!
I thank Sara over at Anyone Can Quilt blog for being an inspiration to make a quilt from vintage bed sheets.
Thank you, sweet Sara!
