  1. The 70's are about when I started to seriously sew. Mostly clothes back then. It would be fun to see the fabrics and whether or not they look familiar.

  6. As a child of the 70's these quilts fascinate me. My four sisters and I made polyester knot quilt tops for our bunk beds. We never backed them and the edges are still raw. Four of us still have them. They never fade, wash and dry, and are perfect for picnics, covering furniture, etc. Thanks for preserving those you find.

  11. I'm an international blogger, so leave me out if you wish, but as a child of the 70's I have very fond memories of the fabrics. Especially the large orange and purple florals of my dresses. My Mum never sewed much, so I have inherited her unused fabrics from the era. I am planning the most outrageous quilt from them.

  26. Years ago my mother bought non-quilt like fabrics at tag (garage) sales and made simple tied car blankets for everyone. The fabrics were everything from wool blends to polyesters, thick and thin. She felt everyone should have a blanket in the trunk for an emergency (what if my brothers were dressed up in good clothes and had to change a flat tire? Lay the blanket on the ground and keep their clothes clean!). I liked her blankets tho not everyone appreciated her odd color choices and crooked stitching-- she went for practicality rather than aesthetics.
    Thanks for bringing back these memories to me. I'd love to have a copy of the catalog.

  28. Our sons had durable, brightly colored double knit patchwork quilts made by their grandmother. They were easy to wash and kept their color. An interesting
    time in quilt history. I have enjoyed reading your posts about your collection of these quilts. I would love to have your book to study them in more detail.

  29. I'd love to win the book! I'm planning to see the show. It will take me back to the 1970s when I made my own clothes out of some of those wild cotton prints and, of course, polyester doubleknits.

  31. I am so drawn to the 1970's Tile Quilt. The color placement makes it seems to glow. I keep coming back to it again and again. It's a wonderful collection :)
