    I have had this fabric for a year or two, but picked it up at a resale shop...I thought it was antique fabric, but it was made into a duvet cover. So I not only have the blue roses fabric, I also have the lovely muslin. I think this is from the 30's or 40's and it is only 36"wide.
    Here are a couple of photos of aprons I made with it...BTW the trim on the little apron is from some antique pillow slips.

    I would guess late 1940s, early 1950s. I have some with yellow roses in my stash from my Mom's stash.

    This might be feedsack material. I have some that looks like that and also in yellow roses. My guess is 40s/50s.
