Wow you have a nice blue collection of fabric. I can't get enough blue fabric lately, I have fallen in love with blue lately. My problem there is no fabric shops hardly where I live, have to drive a couple of hours. I have purchased some off line before and thats a good way to get it. Thanks for sharing your collection.

You do have a wonderful collection and nice variety.
I never see things like that around here, but always keep my eyes open for old fabrics.

Jennifer, I just came across your little blog. My heart is so heavy for you and your family. And your nephew, what a beautiful boy.
Sit at the feet of Jesus and let him comfort you like no other can. He knows. Bless you.

Great selection of "blues"! I have just an awful time finding just the right shade of blue fabric!Could you share the names of some of the fabric companies for these?The quilt shops that I frequent really don't have a lot of blues( at least not the blue I want)! Thanks!

Hi Wanda (Oldecrow)...These are Early fabric pieces from the 1800's....they are antique pieces....

Unfortunately I don't have a good shop to buy fabrics from either...Do a search on ebay or google for Reproduction Fabrics, Civil War Fabrics, etc...Especially on ebay you can find all kinds...That is where I get my reproduction fabrics..

Ohhh MYYYY Jen, I am sooooooo envious! LOVE the blues!!!!!

I wish I could get my hands on a fraction of the ones you have, but sadly nothing like that in good old England, ::::sigh::::

I will just have to drool over your pictures. . .

Happy Valentines Weekend,
Karen

I love your collection of blue fabrics. I love to find pieces of fabric or any textiles especially if it's blue. When I find fabric,doilies, pillow tops, old pillow cases, I just can't pass them by without taking them home. I'm not sure what I'll do with them, but when it hits me the stash is there. Looking forward to see what you come up with for your new stash.
