Retro Fabrics

My Mom was Collector of Fabric. 

I think that it was a good weakness she possessed. 
She would buy the piece and than later would decide what to make from it.

She left our family boxes of fabric. 
I gathered all the colors of Christmas and made my sisters a table topper to display our mom's cherished fabric pieces. Circa.1970's-early 80's.


My "other" dresden plate is from Eleanor Burns "Egg Money Quilt"
 I am currently sewing together.
Retro fabric's from the 30's-40's.
