    Thanks for the directions. My grandmother used to make flour sack quilts all of the time. They are getting old and raggedy now but I love them!

    Thanks for the site, Would you happen to know a web address, that would show some pictures of flour sack quilts? I was given 81 flour sacks, last year, by a dear friend. I've washed and ironed each one, waiting for the right idea to use them, but I'm a very visual person, and I'd rather see, and get a hint, then take off on my own. I'd appreciate any help you could offer. Thanks Rebecca

    See the quilt that costs 464.00, it's from feed sacks.
