    I am in the process of moving, and was sorting and packing up fabric when I came across these pieces. They came from my grandmother's stash, obviously. I'm guessing that the pink is from the 40's. Note the price on the tag--it is a full yard! The fabric is high quality and still in perfect condition. The supermacro on my camera makes the threads look really big, but they aren't. The little tag is less than in inch.

    The second fabric is a blend, and I had to laugh. I'll bet you could date it even without the selvage info! LOL

    At this point, I don't think I could use it! I'll just have to keep it the way it is with the price tag and smile at it! :P

    And I just found this piece. It's a little under a yard. I may just have to make a little quilt using some of each.
