I've been an on-again, off-again quilter for many years. It's a little disconcerting for me to see dates as far back as 1992 on selvages, and I recognize a few pieces as being even older, leftover from projects I know I made back when. They seem good still, and they're American made, which is a definite plus. I was just wondering if there's any reason not to use fabrics this old. I'd still use them for any quilt intended for our own use, but will not put them into a swap item if the general consensus is there might be a problem. I'll just wait to see what you all have to say. If it makes a difference, there has never been smoke in our home. Pets, yes, but not near the fabric stash.
