Vintage fabric.........

A reader contacted me yesterday for help.  Through several emails back and forth I was able to identify a pattern similar to her vintage quilt top and also I found in my vintage fabrics a piece that may work for her binding.  Click here to see her vintage top.
I had been planning to go through the vintage 1940s through 1960s fabrics and measure them so I can offer them for sale.  I checked ebay to see what the going rate is on it and found it anywhere from $6 to $20 a yard.  I also have a huge pile of scraps.  I'm saving the scraps from my own clothing sewing but getting rid of the rest.  I have listed the yardage on my Wandaful Quilts blog.

I check out that quilt and it is so fun! I think I might have several pieces of fabric in my stash of old fabrics that were used this quilt. The piece you found would look good for the binding. You have some pretty vintage fabrics for sale.

There is a whole other flavor to those fabrics. Not sure how to describe it.

I so love vintage fabric! I was lucky enough to score some precuts from the thrift shop and it is my current project quilt. I didn't have enough fabric to make it all vintage so I had to mix it up.
Please please Wanda, show us a detail image of your vintage scraps, I would love that!

That is an awesome print that really goes so well with the mystery block quilt.
