1950s Chinese Fabric

Mummy picked up a vintage handmade quilt recently. The patchwork and quilting were unspectacular, but it was made up in early 50s dress fabrics, some of which were in the most darling novelty prints. I picked out this (rather non politically-correct!) design of little Chinese people, lanterns and characters to repro. It was a lot of work but I really like how it's turned out. It'll be available through Spoonflower soon - I can't wait to make a fun dress or circle skirt up in it!

The quilt actually gave me an idea to make up a simple patchwork quilt myself, using all the fabrics I've repro'd, plus a few original vintage fabrics. I think that would be fun.
