Springy projects

Received some new-to-me prints from
nice additions to my 30s collection!
And meanwhile, I'm using 30s fabrics:
in a crib quilt for the shop

and also to round out and complete a set of blue swap blocks that has been aging in my UFO tub
 for a couple of years.
These 30s fabrics all look springy and fresh to me today!

Stars in a Time Warp

This week at
 Barbara Brackman's Stars in a Time Warp series
we learned about
Barbara gave us many examples of early-19th-century-style INDIGO prints, which featured simpler images than INDIGO fabrics produced at the end of the century.  INDIGO was a very colorfast dye, and was used extensively over a long span of textile history.  I found plenty of INDIGO reproduction fabrics in my stash.
