A very Vintage Fabulous Fabric Friday

41 comments
I told you today was an incredible Friday for fabric. A huge thank-you to Lori, a reader of our blog. Lori sent me an incredible box of vintage fabric this week. I could hardly believe her generosity and my fortune in having this very sweet and thoughtful box come to me!
Here is a picture of what opening the box looked like - a vintage fabric lover's dream!
I love vintage quilt books. These two have great ideas. And a little charm pack! How cute are these! There are yards and yards of this fabric. I was glad because it is my favorite of the lot. I can think of so many uses for this and I'm very into those colors right now. Charming juvenile novelty fabric - looks like some of the new Japanese fabrics they are making. So cute.
The scale of this juvenile novelty fabric is wonderful. This is something I will definitely put in my next baby quilt.
Mushrooms are all the rage now. Everything old is new again!
Seersucker, gingham and flocked gingham. I feel like I've gone into my my mom's sewing room shelves from when I was a kid.
I love roses. Aren't these two vintage rose prints wonderful. Very beautiful.
This purple and blue one reminds me of some fabric Eileen used in her owls this Christmas. And the red could be used for so many things.
Isn't this kitchen novelty great? I love the green and blue together and the watches and things are so fun. Guns even!

Thank you again Lori. I am very excited to have these fabrics and I will put them to use and think of your thoughtfulness when I use them! Isn't that so nice of her.

Happy weekend everyone. Edit - I forgot to mention Teresa's giveaway. Go say hi to her.

Somewhere I have some of the pink and blue patchwork baby print. :-) My favorite is the yellow and blue cat fabric. It is really cute and don't recall ever seeing anything similar. Packages are fun to receive and to send. Just put a little one in the mail to you today :-) Have a good weekend. I'll be taking down the tree and all the while I'll be planning for next Christmas!! :-)

Linda said...

Isn't that funny? I remember when mushrooms were in - then they were so OUT. Now they're in again! I guess if you keep things long enough, it comes back in style.

BTW - I loved Natalie's posting. It was so refreshing.

It's SO neat to see that novelty kids fabric, the one that looks like quilt squares! I saw a baby quilt made of this in a thrift store, it was so faded it was VERYYYYYYYYY pastel, but that exact print. I'm still kicking myself for putting the blanket back (what was I thinking?!??!?!) But it was SO nice to see how the fabric looked before it was so well loved!

Enjoy your new stash!
