Default Anybody know what the name for this fabric is?

Hey guys, this is a quilt I made a year ago, and I would love to mack another one, I love the colors, but I donít know the name of the fabric, it was given to me, and the lady that gave it to me, found it in a box forgot in her new house she moved into, she know I did quilts, so she gave it to me, it had pins in it, that had rusted, I thought Iíd never get them out, I did, then I sewed, quilted, and gave it a good wash, the quilt now belongs to a good friend of mine, she liked it so much, I gave it to her.c4355998-7340-42bc-8881-9af41925b112.jpeg

​They could be 1960 disco prints but some modern designers do brights like Tula Pink.

If the fabric is that old, you are unlikely to find it.

That's really cool fabric! You may not find the exact pieces but if you look around you can find something similar.

The fabrics remind me of Me and My Sister fabrics...they have sweet designs and bright colors....here is one example...

Cool prints, nice quilt. If you like bright prints, I agree with Tartan, Tula Pink has wonderful bright colors and prints. I'm sorry I don't know the name of your fabric, good luck with finding it.

It looks like something long, long gone... from the 60's or 70's. The rusted pins seal the deal!

You could probably search for 60s and 70s style prints. I bet someone is making something very similar still. Was this a jelly roll? 2.5" strips?
