Default I'm looking for '30's repro . . . .

I have lots of medium '30's fabric and want to make a scrappy quilt. But what I don't have are any lights. I know this is a long shot but does anyone know of any fat quarter bundles that are made up of lights only? Preferably a white background with pastel print. I've searched several web sites but can't find anything that would be only lights, all bundles are mixtures. Even something that is no longer sold would be helpful, I may be able to get it on Etsy or elsewhere. If I can't find anything I'll end up using plain white fabric which is almost as good.

Are you looking specifically for 30s reproduction fabrics or will any light neutrals work? Not 30s fabric per se, but Laundry Basket Quilts has 2 current options: Secret Stash Neutrals and Signature Style.

It doesn't have to be '30's specifically, just '30's compatible. I never heard of Laundry Basket Quilts so I took a look. They have some beautiful fabric. The Signature Style is really nice and would be perfect if the background was white instead of off white. I really need white to match the other fabric. If I wasn't trying to use up my stash before splurging on more fabric I would be spending a lot at Laundry Basket.

I don't have a lot of mostly white/pastel prints, but I usually don't like to use solid white so when I am using my 30s-40s repros, I usually use white-on-white prints. They go together beautifully.

Lots of different WOW prints, here: https://www.connectingthreads.com/fa...ite/c/60020418

Try Quilted Twins. They have a large selection of fabric. Lot of variety & if you sent an email they should be able to help.

I would give Etsy a try -- lots of repro bundles available there.

I have found that an ecru or soft white works with 30's colors. Nothing too stark like snow.

The Fat Quarter Shop has lots of different bundles. It might be worth it to check what they have. I’ve been pleased with what I’ve ordered from them.

I love this one, and it would well with my quilt. I hope I can find, somewhere, a fat quarter bundle with just the lights. I'm trying to cut down on my stash not build it up any more which is why I want only lights.
