Fabric Friday Oldies but Goodies

13 comments
Everyone, including me, is busy with last minute Christmas preparations. Who has time to blog and read blogs? But it is fabric Friday. So for those who care I thought I would post some fabrics I recently pulled off my shelf. Shelbie did some rearranging for me and washed and pressed some of my vintage pieces. So why not show them before I put them in their place? These above I've fussy cut here and there to add in some of my quilts.
I love the pink, black, green and gray. This theme with the daisies would make a great project with the addition of just a few complimentary fabrics. You know I love windows.
This vintage piece reminds me so much of my mother. She used to collect fabrics she could use when making projects for the grandkids.
This is perhaps one of my top 10 vintage fabrics. It is crisp and new just like it would have been off the bolt to make into curtains 50 years ago.
Shelbie washed and ironed this favorite table cloth. Yeah it has that odd gravy stain in the corner but I lay it out to hide that. It combines dishes with a PA Dutch flair.
I have this vintage curtain fabric in several yards. I could fussy cut it because I have so much of it but someday I will make a quilt or curtains with it. It isn't easy to find vintage fabric pieces with multiple yardage.
This is another fabric that reminds me of my mother (Freda). She had this on her shelf and made things for the grandkids out of it. Who doesn't love a little Holly Hobbie? I do.

I hope you have a great weekend as we plunge into very very last minute Christmas preparations. Monday I will show you my gift to neighbors and coworkers.

Love seeing your oldies! How have you built this collection? I'd like to get more vintage fabrics. Also, I was told you should not mix vintage and new because the vintage will wear out faster- any experience with that?

I just love them!! I can't decide which one is my favorite, but I do have to say I'm kind of partial to the kitty one. Trudy

This is the first chance I've had to read blogs in days (thank you for posting!) The pink and gray fabrics make me dizzy. So pretty!

They are divine fabrics. Something to treasure always in a quilt made for a special person.

Another great Fabric Friday Nanette! I'm struggling to keep up with blogs this week too -- too much to do. Have a great week -- can't wait to see what your neighbor gift will be!
