    I have fabric that is at least 40 years old. I check it every so often and it seems to be still in good shape. One day . . . .

    Those are really pretty.
    I also have fabrics from who knows when. I 'think' mine are from the 70s - calicos, Laura Ashley, brights, tropical foliage and some that are just blah (one does need neutrals occasionally I guess).

    I would be willing to bet that some of the fabric I got on auction sales are from the 50's and maybe earlier. I have some feed sacks that sugar and flour came in and I am saving them til I find that pattern that says to me--- THIS IS THE ONE. Ha might never find that one.
