    So my MIL brought me a couple of quilts that her aunt made. They appear to be made from feedsacks. One is all plaids and the other is a variety of prints. They are just simple squares. I am wondering if anyone knows of a good source to try to find feedsacks to replace some of the squares that are really worn. There seems to be certain fabrics that are wearing out and then teh squares on the fold line are really worn. :cry: Thanks!!!!!

    The only place I have sen them is ebay. I have looked at a few antique shops, but never lucky enough to find any, but maybe you could look there, too.

    search for the Feedsack Club. They may have a source (other than the box in my basement)
