Daily Swatch: Reunited Colorways with Guest Curator Samantha

This week, we welcome guest curator Samatha, a fellow vintage fabric collector who co-writes the blog Two Green Chickens and runs the Etsy shop of the same name. She will be reuniting different colorways of the same vintage designs.

Vintage - folksy Xmas print

Here’s to Christmas in summer. When I found this I loved that it wasn’t in a traditional Christmas color but I did find a green version on Flickr. I love all the little images that goes into making this — trees, birds, bells, snowflakes, deer.

Fabric from Samantha’s own collection (top); and from the collection of cluttershop on Flickr (bottom).

    This is a fun series! I would also love to see contemporary prints reunited with their vintage inspiration.

    This print is so wonderful — I have such big love for Pennsylvania dutch.
