Question 2 – What fabrics/styles were in style when you began quilting?
Lots of calico and muted colors. Pink, peach, mint green, muddy browns. I don’t remember the name brands back then but I do remember Concord Fabrics. Solids were popular and “Amish” quilts with the solids and black were often used.
I don’t remember there being brights or batiks. Surely if there were brights, I would have found them! 🙂
