    Vintage Feed Sack Quilt quilted!

    I purchased this vintage feed sack quilt top at an estate auction in 2007 for $2.00!!!

    It had not been cut or sewn together precisely and didn't lay flat, so I "nipped & tucked" it and got it reasonably flat. I also added the cream calico print outer border to make it large enough for a full-sized bed.

    I FMQ'd it using a thrift store-purchased sheet for backing (I used the sheet wrong side out to tone down the brightness of the stripes) and used W & N cotton batting.

    It is a gift for my sister. She lets us use her vacation condo in FL and I made it for the bed in her guest room!

    I love the way it turned out! I hope the person who made the top would be happy with the way it turned out!

    What an awesome quilt. Love it.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    That came out beautiful! I love your choice for the backing and the quilting is lovely. How did you do the pretty label? It looks hand-lettered.

    That is lovely. Simple and elegant.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.
