Chasing the Challenge

I rather like my title this week for the Pack Patch Mini QAL Challenge.
Chase is such an innovative thinker and she challenged us to first choose fabrics and colors that represent the year we were born. I vividly remember my parent's kitchenette set. It was pink and black formica with vinyl chairs. I remember thinking we were so fashionable. I guess my love of fabric, fashion and color started way back then. I know all you who love the mid-century modern era know exactly what this dinette set might have looked like.

Born in the 1950"s
The second challenge was to think about what era you wish you were born and choose fabrics accordingly. I chose the 1930's, not because I wanted to live through the depression, but because I wanted to be grown up enough to wear the fashions of the 1940's and 1950's. I love the full skirts and sleek suits.

 And my feet would love those practical loafers and bobbie sox.

Wish I was born in the 1930's

Love the links you've made to the eras you were born and the era you wished you'd lived in! And the blocks matchup beautifully!

Good job I'm not playing along, I just scraped into the tail end of the seventies where brown and orange were the colour combo du jour o.O Love your combos though!

I too would have loved yo wear the fashions of the forties and fifties - so glamorous to wear gloves and a hat! I would also like to have worn the twenties styles and Charlston of course. Perfect blocks.
