I love 30-40-50's prints!!
Tthis is not the line I bought but it is the line that will make the quilt as shown in the picture with the pattern. I bought multiple panels off of etsy. I think they have more if you are interested in the panels only. I thought it was a great way to use up scraps of 1930 fabrics and that is mostly what I have. the panels would easily lend themselves to any pattern to make a quick baby quilt. this pattern as above with all the flying geese is a maybe a little more intensive. the pattern is free online.
I did buy a stack of fat quarters from here but it was this line by Penny rose designs called toy chest-
I really like it because all the prints have little animals or items like baby shoes on it. I justified the big splurge because it is birthday month and I have several grand children expected this summer. Most of my 1930 fabrics is scraps I bought from other people or traded. Having a set of coordinated fat quarters helps me use and tie together the scraps also. I then sort them by size and color. I just bought some off of Connecting threads and got some backing 4 yards for about $12.50. It shreds more readily but over all has a nice hand, a bit heavy, and is affordable.
I like collecting reproduction fabrics like 1930s or Civil War because they are timeless to me.
This is the teal fabric for the back.
