For my Vintage Diamonds English Paper Piecing project, I mentioned that I was thinking about buying some reproduction 1930s fabric, so I'd have more volume and more variety in the project. So, I picked some fabric (on eBay) and was so excited to get a tiny stack of fabric in the mail!
I'm loving the rainbow-y look! I bought a stack of 40 squares that measure 4 1/2 inches each ... So, out of each square, I cut three diamonds, and there's a little scrap leftover from each that will work with my mini-hexagon project.
The perfectionist in me wanted to keep the "real" vintage-fabric part of the project separate from the "fake" vintage (reproduction fabric) part of the project. Like maybe using the real vintage fabric as the centerpiece of the quilt, and the reproduction fabric for an elaborate border. But I'm getting over that, and I'm liking the depth that the added fabrics give the ones I had.
