    Now I have another question. Where can I find a good variety of thirties fabric? I have found a little here and there, but not a really good selection that I can order all at once. I'll need a pretty good variety. I have some, but want thirties solids, too. I want to be able to have at least 3 rounds that match. I don't mind paying lqs prices if I can find what I want.

    Look for Aunt Grace fabrics. That is a whole line of 30's reproduction fabrics. If you go on eBay and search Aunt Grace you will find TONS!~!!!

    I usually buy my 30s fabric from www.fatquartershop.com and www.quiltshops.com. Just be sure to put in "30s fabric" or "reproduction" in the search engines on these sites and you'll get a ton of shops. :)

    Oh, and you can go to www.quiltshops.com and do a search. Also try all the online sources listed in the Links and Resources section here.

    I love the repro fabs, too. What size pieces do you need? Let us know what your project is and we may be able to help. I've been collecting from all over....it's fun and those fabs are so cute! I've been putting a spiderweb together using them. Have had to experiment with different color combinations ...great fun! Good luck with your search!

    I got a good price on a bundle of fat quarters at ebay. You can narrow your search to thirties fabrics.
