Pink Quilt Delivered

I took the pink quilt to its owner. She was so surprised and thrilled. It made all the aggravation over the machine tension and broken parts just melt away. I also went to Hancocks and not only bought a magazine I'd been hoping to find, but also got a great tip. The clerk suggested that I just add an extra strip to each side of the sleep pants that are too small. I think that's a great idea. They are after all just sleep pants. Then I went to another friends house and helped her with the mind numbing task of basting her quilt. It is finished as is my index finger from pushing the needle through. While I was there, she gave me two bags of stuff to take to our guild to sell. I looked through and found all this fabric. I am wondering if she should just keep it. I mean I think it is all 70's fabric. I figure we all race around trying to find vintage fabrics, these are half way there! The only thing is that I can't tell if they are 70's, 80's, or yesterdays. This is why I don't ever, ever buy vintage fabric or vintage looking quilts in antique stores because I can't tell the difference. So I'm posting pictures in the hopes that someone else can tell something. I can blow the pictures up. I'm not too sure if you can tell anything in a photo.

What am I thankful for today?

1. Friends to baste quilts with...either theirs or mine
2. DH arriving to his destination safely, with no delays!
3. A capable, interested, willing to work for her paycheck assistant

I don't know exactly how old they are, but I would have to guess 70's or 80's!

Doesn't matter if they are the "look" that you want!

Based on the fact that many of those prints were in Mama's stash and it' dated from the late 70s thru the 80s I'd say that is the date range you have there. A few I recognize as definately late 70s because I remember when and what she purchased them for.
