Vintage Fabric

I mentioned yesterday that my dad and mom pulled some vintage fabric for me from my great aunt’s estate. I thought I would share some of that with you today. This first pile is all a bit heavier than quilting cotton, more like home dec weight.


This next piece is at least 4 yards, all 36 inch width.


A pretty vintage sheet! New in the package until I opened it.


The next two are same print, different color ways.



I love these border prints. My aunt loved her aprons!



And this last group might be my favorite. There are at least 3 yards of that 30s green!


Not sure where all of this will end up. There is more, but these were my favorites.

Yesterday, I took Big E and Stinky for a long walk while Daughter #1 helped #3 work on her apartment.


We waved at the mail man in his truck and he waved back! So exciting! 
After she took her boys home, I helped #3 some more with unpacking, hanging stuff etc. it was a great day. And my Fit Bit thought so too.


That is NOT my normal day! But I have been working hard at getting all my steps in.

Time to get some quilting in before work. Have a great day!

    What neat vintage fabrics! You had a great day and got in plenty of walking! I’ve been bad lately and haven’t been hitting my 10,000 steps…..I had better do it next week!

  2. Wow, 17k steps! I do good to get in 5k steps (although I’m increasing my distance when walking so one do these days) so there’s hope that I’ll get back >10k one of these days.

    What fabulous fabrics. Score!

    Oh those chickens! Wow! right up my alley and the fruit border print too. I know you will do something fantastic with them.

  4. Those fabrics are wonderful — especially knowing where they came from. Great grandson photos and outstanding fit bit stats!

  6. Looks like you got some real treasures there with the fabric and sheets, etc. Cute little guy (grand son?) too and WOW on the fitbit! On a typical day I get about 8000, and always trying for 10,000.
