Oh Those '70's Babies...Vintage Fabric Panel Giveaway.

You can win one of these vintage/retro '70's "cheater' quilt panels.
So...''70's retro...
This fabric has got to bring back some memories...that is unless you are under thirty? Perhaps you actually had a blankie similar to this.
This cheater quilt fabric just screams 1970.
I remember some of my cousins coming home from the hospital wrapped in blankets that looked just like this. The colors, the print...so '70's baby nursery. My first child was born 1981...just missed the seventies.
I got the whole bolt of this quilt panel fabric at a sale! Couldn't pass it up.
Of course being "pure" 1970's era , it is 50% cotton 50% polyester.
Hey that polyester washes up great! It's in perfect condition too.
Do you remember this fabric?

Just leave me a comment to have a chance to win this quilt panel. No need to go to my etsy shop or anywhere else...just glad you stopped by to say hello. Maybe you have a memory of a nursery print of the seventies you would like to share?

I'll announce the winner on Saturday, March 7th.
For more chances to win just comment on any of my blog posts during the coming week.
I will add another chance for each time you stop by.
Thanks for visiting!
Good Luck!

I clearly remember this style of prints from the 70's. I mostly remember that the design characteristics of baby layettes at the time were rather simple and chunky animal prints, sort of in a whimsical color book style. My niece was born at the tail end of the 70's and I'm pretty sure that she had a blanket similar in design.
Take care!
Aloha!

I love fabric and this is very pretty. I do remember the 70s fabrics but can't think of any particular print.

I was born in the 1980's (and am the oldest child in my family) so I can't remember any of the 70s fabrics myself, but I do remember seeing similar fabrics at my cousins', who were some years older than me. And I love these prints! :-)

I was born in 78, so I don't remember this fabric, but I absolutely love it!!

Jingle said...

Well, I was born in 1979, so I don't have many memories, but the stuff in the photos is adorable! I love the vintage worn look of 70's fabric designs.
