    Need help getting 1930 reproduction fat quarter

    I need 28 fat quarters assorted of 1930 fabric. I have a hard time picking out 1930 fabric it not my first pick in making a quilt. It for a quilt retreat project. We are making Fon and Poter Emily wedding quilt. I need a good source to get them out without me picking them. I would like to stay away from the animals, kidd look one. I like the look of the quilt but when I go look at the fabric I don't like the looks of it on a bolt .

    This shop (local to me) has a huge selection of 1930s reproductions. You can choose FQ bundles without having to choose them individually.

    click on "fabric" in the box on the left side
    "1930" is at the top left

    I've bought tons of 1930's and 40's repros from Keepsake Quilting. They ship quickly and their customer service department is very helpful if you need to call.

    Connecting Threads has a great new fabric that is in MaaMah's quilt and you can buy it separately. I purchased the quilt kit and fabric is wonderful....truly back to the 1930's style.

    I have also bought 30s reproductions from Keepsake Quilting and from Connecting Threads. No problems or complaints with either.

    30s reproductions

    I buy a lot of 1930s reproductions online and in the brick and mortar Erica's shop in South Bend, Indiana. It's a little tricky finding the link to them from the site. After clicking on fabrics, go to "old fashioned" not sure why the repros are listed this way but they sell a huge assortment and you can even order a quilt 'kit' that has a lovely assortment of colors with similar size prints if you're hesitant about putting the fabrics together. I have been very happy with their service and selections.

    Most of the 30's fabrics were animals and kids. You may have to buy two fat quarter bundles to get enough without those designs.

    This shop is actually local to me so I do not order on line, BUT - he has a huge supply of 30's.
