30s or not to 30s, that is the question...

Our 30s section in the Quilt Shop - we called it 30s Street
Hello all my quilting lovelies!  Do you like 30s fabrics?  Or are you puzzled by the interest in them?  I have found that either you love them or you can't figure out what the big deal is with these old prints.  Are they out of fashion in the quilt world?  These are all questions I do not know how to answer.   Personally, I love vintage stuff.  Someday I will have my mahogany twin beds refinished, set up in a guest room and decked out with the two twin 30s quilts I made.  I have embroidered vintage pillows that I plan to place on each one.  These pastel prints remind me of my Grandma Evelyn.  Her love of pink was evident throughout her home.  

But there is another side of 30s prints.  The brighter side using primary colors that seem perfect for little ones.  I used a mix of red, blue and yellow 30s when I made a baby quilt for one of my dearest friends.  They were classic.  I knew they would work for a boy or girl and were not based on passing color or character fads.  That once little baby girl is now 15 years old and she still has the quilt in her room.  

You can gather from my quilting experiences that I am one of those that LOVE 30s fabrics.  So when the opportunity came to order some, I did just that.  I went with the brights since they work for boys and girls.  They are classic in color and style.

There are seven prints from which to choose.  We have a fat quarter pack for your 30s stash!

Need some ideas? We have created five different baby bundles and kits.  But remember - any four half yards will work with ANY of the Baby A-OK patterns.

Have a fun and safe Fourth of July with friends and family!
