This listing is for set #9, which I call " White, Grey through Black. " These hard to find soft black prints are perfect for lots of projects! This set #9 contains a white shirting, several grey sprigged blenders and lots of lovely black background florals, geometrics and paisley. There are pink, cream, yellow, red and taupe details. Other colors are represented in the prints and/or floral patterns. Please look at the photos to see these prints up close.
And in the interest of accuracy, instead of measuring all the pieces, I have weighed each collection, with the benchmark being that one yard of pre-washed Cranston Print weighs 4 ounces. This collection (set #9) weighs one pound 2 oz (over 4 yards) and contains 18 different fabrics, some of which may be in two pieces...but, in my mind, count as one fabric. The largest piece in set #9 is 36" x 28" (the black background with red, pink and purple roses and green stems print.)
We call these comfort colors. Though the majority of the fabrics are Cranston Prints, others within these 11 sets include Peter Pan Prints, early Jinny Beyer, Museum Classics and many other lines by VIP Fabrics, and Joan Kessler for Concord Fabrics and more. Every one of these 11 collections offer large uncut pieces, cut strips, fat quarters, and scraps.
These are soft, premium, vintage fabrics, no stiff or cheap materials here. The last photo in the line up shows the entire selection, broken up into the collections we have listed, with this set #9 being third in from the bottom. Some of the sets have a duplicate fabric (ex: light blue and dark blue each have a piece of cute bright blue fabric with red flowers, I did not cut these into two pieces, but wanted to share! :-)
No scraps are included that would be smallish fidgety bits, all pieces are foldable and most have been ironed. All are clean, though vintage they are not musty. There are a few pieces that have a bit of embroidery. They were all stored (together) in a sealed box, so no sunlight struck them or spiders invaded. I have had these timeless fabrics boxed and stored in our clean and dry attic for over 30 years! And I have added a couple of not vintage, but excellent quilt quality cotton fabric companions to some of the sets.
It's high time for someone to love these classic sprigged prints and calicos, florals, tone on tones, two color and multi colored prints and geometrics as they should be! Build your stash in an instant and of course we are happy to combine shipping!
