    Vintage Fabric

    I just had a LOT of vintage looking fabrics donated for making baby quilts. I'm use to making them with baby looking fabric. And good idea how to use it for babies?

        That's a lot of fabric! What about tumbling blocks? Great for babies, and can use all or any of those fabrics.

          Smart @ss lol

          I think these will really work for many "baby" patterns because they're small prints so you can cut them up in smaller squares without having to worry. Maybe mix in some whites or other pastels to help tie them together? I've seen lots of baby quilts made with vintage fabric and they look beautiful

          Something like this comes to mind:

              Most look like they would work with a babyish print as secondary or background fabrics or just use them as a backing. Nice score of fabric.

                That's what I was thinking. Buy a couple yards of a multicolor baby print and mix in. Or maybe do some applique?

                  I like these! I wouldn't worry about the prints on the fabrics; just go ahead and make whatever quilt design you have been. As Kensington said, you can sort them by color, and even by brights/pastels. I'm sure whatever you come up with will be beautiful, and will be a blessing to the recipients!

                    I noticed the primary colors, those are great for baby boy quilts. My boys and even baby rooms for them were always the bright primary colors. You could draw up some simple shapes like Teddy bears, blocks, beach balls or a truck and do a center block applique and then do some primary color borders for a cute baby boy quilt.

                        that's a lot of nice fabric. I'm sure you'll think of something to make for a baby.

                          I just saw the greatest quilt done in vintage fabrics, made just like falling charms, but sewn together on point, with a completely different look! I'm going to make some sample blocks to experiment with.

                              Way to go on such a nice group of Fabrics!! Love the photo Dee (Mysical) posted because all or any colors go into that -- and the easier the pattern, the more you can make for the kids :-) Maybe simple 4 patches next to squares highlighting any special fabics in there --Great going and just amazing how generous people are donating some cool fabric.

                              Good luck!
