Ok, so I know all of us have tons of crafting supplies around the house. I've heard tales of fabric bolts lining stairwells, under beds (maybe on top of them?). Anyway, I have finally reached my limit and am ready to part with a large amount of fabric. I am putting it all in my etsy shop www.karolsvintageart.etsy.com under the destash sale category and pricing it at my cost.
Please do not restrain yourselves:)

This is the latest Treasury that I created featuring vintage finds from the 1970's...
What an amazing collection of memorabilia. In the process of creating this, I have come across some wonderful vintage shops that you must check out!
Please see the shop titles under the photos for each item.
One special shop-owner Adrien Lucas of www.Vintagestew.etsy.com has graciously and patiently guided me through the process of uploading the graphics above. You must visit her wonderful vintage shop featuring impeccable clothing from years past at incredible prices! She has also a wonderful blog:www.vintagestew.blogspot.com.

The idea for this quilt was conceived when struggling to come up with a meaningful gift for a friend's birthday. Having spent many wonderful evenings in her home, I thought about what an important part our homes play in our lives. Warm, welcoming, loving, nurturing, they are a reflection of who we are and what is important to us.
I am hoping to create many more of these quilts for others as the years go by (although I am stopping at my current house after having moved 9 times in the last 17 years!).
Ok, so I'm dating myself just a little, but when I saw this fabric, I just had to have it because of it's name "1974". I did some research on the songs for that exact year (read my description in the etsy listing http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=26454755) and then I was back in that year. I loved Jim Croce, Stevie Wonder and Elton John (saw him in concert back in the 80's). My son has converted me to "Indie" music now, some of which have lyrics amazingly similar to those here.
