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!

  3. 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.

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

  7. 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!
