Vintage Fabric Jewelry

My grandmother used to quilt.  She is in her 90s now and hasn't sewn for ages.  Still, though, I remember her quilting supplies piled up in her living room.  I have the quilt she made me for my 8th birthday (my golden birthday!).

My aunt found a pile of quilt squares in Grandma's house.  The larger squares will be made into quilts.

There was a stack of teeny tiny squares.  Most of these squares were one-of-a-kind.  They are all vintage fabric (pre-1980s).  Whatever were we going to do with all these itty bitty beautiful bits of fabric?

It took me a year to figure out what to do!  I'm so happy with how the jewelry has turned out.  I made a bunch for myself and my sisters.  The rest are for sale in my Etsy shop.
