    I agree -- use them all since they work well together. I know 7 that are vintage, and they all blend well. Do what our foremothers did and mix the decades of the fabrics to confuse the quilt archivists in 50 years .

    I think they all look wonderful together. I think no one will be able to tell and they will make a great quilt.

    That group of fabric looks a lot like what is in my repo stash.

    I was only able to pick out 6 of them. They are all beautiful and I wouldn't hesitate to use any of them. I think they will make a stunning quilt. i love 30s fabrics.

    A year ago I made a quilt for my DD out of vintage. I didn't have quite enough vintage and added some new to the old. No one knows but me. It turned out beautiful. In fact some of the old were like ones you have pictured.
