New (to me) fabric!

I just received some beautiful vintage fabric. Some pinks and pale greens: Red and white striped and checkered:
Some bright blues:
Faded stripes:
And a nice amount of this 1970's big print:
I really love all the different styles and colors of these fabrics. I need to think of some interesting projects to use these on!

Kim! You had me at vintage. pink. and pale green. Love your new (old) fabric. Ok, so now I'm so embarrassed that I showed you my sad attempt at stitching - ha! You do such beautiful work. I can't wait to see more!

Thank you Window into our life - I will definitely post whatever I do with these!
K.Crane - Thank you!
Sara - Thanks - I love that red and white too - so unusual!
Thank you Farah! I am so glad you like these - the faded stripes are so pretty - that particular fabric has a few small holes but I think I will be able to work around them.
Hi Karoline! Thank you! Sad attempt?!! It was gorgeous and I want to try doing a 39 square project like that - It looks like so much fun!
Thanks Libby! They are in really good condition I just wish I had more of each one!
