Real Vintage Fabric

I had a pretty exciting day, fabric wise, yesterday. A shipment I had ordered came in from a quilting colleague and a friend dropped over with this piece. Isn't it beautiful. It came from a lady who belongs to my church and apparently she used to sew alot of her clothing. She was cleaning and came across all this vintage fabric. My friend is going to sew up some clothing with it, and she is going to give me the scraps! Can't get better than that.

I have this piece sitting on my dresser as I try and imagine what kind of art quilt I will turn it into.
And maybe next time I go to church I will chat it up with a certain lady.... just in case=)
