To know me is to know that I love vintage fabric. Unfortunately, in the UK, decent vintage fabrics suitable for quilting or dressmaking are pretty thin on the ground and the ones that are around are pricey. So, I turn to repros and feedsack style fabrics and Eternal Maker has some gems tucked away in its masses of fabrics!
There are a lot of yellow prints, starting off with this beauty from Sara Morgan for Blue Hill Fabrics. There is a tiny hourglass motif for the background.
And another Sara Morgan print, Yellow Vintage Flowers, with a sketchy lattice effect
American Jane at Moda always produce great vintage style prints, I have this yellow and blue vintage flower print and I love it. This cut is a bolt end so when it's gone it's gone.
This is the same print in a different colour way, a fresher, zestier look.
I don't know much about Antique Treasures apart from, as the name suggests, they produce repro feedsack style prints. This is a vibrant blue floral
Which makes me think about this blue Windham Strawberry picnic plaid.
Great colours in this Pink Crosshatch Floral and a bargain price.
Similar 1930s colours in this Timeless Treasures floral, Anna-Lena Flower Garden
And also in another Sara Morgan floral print- I love orange and pink together
Sevenberry don't seem to produce a lot of fabrics in any of their ranges but what they do put out tends to be stunning, like this mustard/grey floral.
Lecien produce lots of prints with a vintage feel. The Mrs March range always contains some beauties including novelty prints like this teal alphabet kids parade.
Find more Mrs March fabrics here.
The Folklore range at Lecien has a more recent vintage feel, bolder colours and more European in reference like this red vine floral.
And this border print in teal and pink- perfect for clothing, little girl's dresses/skirts- or even full size
This Lecien print takes me to thoughts of 1970s fabrics, the flowers are big and red and tan has a truly retro feel.
And a few vintage style mixers to go with all those prints:
Dot to Dot School Days by American Jane. There is enought lightness and space in this to make it a great background print.
