    Hi,

    I was talking to my friend on the phone this evening and her uncle wants her to make a quilt like his mom made years ago.

    Highway thru Texas with flower sacks

    Anyone know about this pattern design?

    Hi,

    I just found this link for flour sacks to make a quilt, I bet this is what she is talking about?

    found this article on feedsack quilts, really cool and will make you laugh, enjoy

    I have never seen a quilt made up with them and I will need to start looking at the antique stores to see if I can find them.

    If anyone has any pictures of them that you have would love to see them.

    Does her uncle have any photos of the quilt? Or can he make a sketch of the pattern for your friend?

    Feedsacks are fun to collect and quilt with. I have found them with some of the vendors at quilt shows.

    I lookedfor it to,and was wondering if itcould be Highway to heaven and she just changed the name. I remember my mother making my litle dresses, slips and panties , from feed sacks, I was well dressed, so I thought. She made my daughter a flowersack dress when she was little and I think I still have it. O do the feed sacks bring back memories.

    I will check with the state quilt club and the AQS to see if any of them have heard of it.

    I looked in Jenny Beyer's new book of over 4050 quilt blocks and couldn't find it listed by this name. Maybe there's another name for it?
