    I found a vintage double wedding ring feed sack top (hand pieced) at an Antique store. The lady had mispriced it she accidently put the lot number instead of price number but she upheld her mistake and I purchased this top for $30.00 instead of $79.00. I am pretty sure it all authenetic feedsack and know its handpieced and I am going to finish the quilt by handquilting it. But if anybody has any input that would be great! thx

    It does a few rust looking stains but not bad at all for the age and no tear or rips

    Looks like feedsacks to me. I wore feedsack dresses in the 40s.
