    I have a lot of blocks that are unfinished of Grandmother's flower garden. I need to find the yellow color that is in the middle of the flower. Can anyone help me find this? The fabrics are probably around the 20's and 30's. I would appreciate any help or information.

    I'm not sire I know how to post a picture. The yellow is a solid color somewhere close to a dull mustard color for the center of the flower for Grandmother's flower garden. Please forgive my ignorance

    I pick up my vintage fabrics from local antique estate sellers - they are wonderful at telling me dates/provenance of fabrics. I have some amazing 30's fabrics I bought recently.

    Etsy has a lot of nice bundles.

    there are a ton of reproductions out there so make sure you use a trusted/knowledgeable seller. :-)

    good luck with your hunt! I'm looking for a few specific ones myself (I've posted them here).
