Stash #3 Detail: Teddy Bears & Rainbows


These fabrics could be considered vintage.

Here are some fabrics that my mom bought with the intention of making a baby quilt, matching curtains and sheets… FOR ME! Needless to say, that project didn’t come to fruition (with me being the fourth child? I don’t blame her for not finding the time!) Since these fabrics were bought in 1984-1985, I guess they could be considered vintage today!


A fussy cut piece, also intended for me.

I’m not sure about the blue fabric with the white polka dots, but the other fabrics all appear to be from the same collection. The second fabric from the right has “Spiegel Fabrics #9702 copyright 1985” on it. A Google search hasn’t turned anything up. The top piece is a pre-quilted fabric.

I’m still not sure what I plan on doing with these fabrics. The blue fabric could be used for my American flag quilt. I might consider selling the others on Etsy or Ebay. Maybe I will make a couple of quilts out of them and sell those. I’m not sure any of my friends with kids would want a baby quilt made with vintage fabrics. I can see the third, fourth and fifth prints being used on other projects, but I’m not sure about the others. Time will tell, I suppose!

  1. I hope this will work, Erin. I’ve e-mailed you and asked what you want for the fabric. This has been a 20 year quest. I’d love for it to end soon. You hold the key.
