Dutchman's Puzzle Quilt Top Progress

A lot of progress was made on my Dutchman's Puzzle quilt top this week.  Here are all the blocks sewn together.  Oh how the yellows brightened this gloomy Ohio day!
This was one vintage twin sheet that I paid FULL PRICE for at Goodwill (a full $3).  But I couldn't pass up those colors!  I combined it with the muslin that I buy at JoAnn Fabrics by the bolt.  I'm not sure how I'll add the border yet.  I am out of vintage sheet.  I think I'll add some more muslin, something yellow, and then some muslin and bind it.  Can't wait to try my stippling on it!

"A Peach in Stitches" is having a giveaway whereas you post pictures of your "Old and New" fabrics.  My oldest fabric is this floral print.  I bought it at a garage sale this summer.  The lady said it was "vintage" and thought it was from the late 40's.  She had been quilting over 50 years and was in the fabric distribution industry.  She sells her stash in garage sale form every year.  Gotta watch the papers for next year's sale!  I didn't have to dig far for it because I was cutting it yesterday.  It matches  my treasures & Tidbits fabric from Robert Kaufman that I won from Leila at Sewn.  Here it is:
The newest fabric that I have arrived yesterday in the mail.  I won it from Ella at Throw a Wench in the Works blog :  http://throwawenchintheworks.blog  THANKS, Ella!  It is three fat quarters of Lark from Amy Butler.spot.com/
