Thinking Way Far Ahead

So I am trying to be more balanced and I am realizing that has a lot to do with how much extra stuff I have going on during the semester. I started to think way far ahead and since my month is March for Busy Little Quilting Bee I pulled out my fabric and started cutting.

All vintage stash. I still need to buy a whole bunch of white or off white. I already know exactly what I want to ask for as a block. Here are some closer views.

So pretty and delicate! Any idea what decade these are from? The tiny flowers seem like the 1920s or 30s, but the colors say 1970s.

I love the thought of a vintage quilt. I have tons of vintage pieces that I am afraid to cut into! Yours will be great...

Back in the '70s, my mom & I both had long prairie skirts made out of the brown version of your red floral. (and the scraps got used all over the house in other little projects.)
