    Feed Sack quilt

    I finished quilting this small quilt this past week. I used feed sack prints in the blocks. I got a big barrel of them for $1 at a garage sale! It seemed that pink was a good color to set them off. Now my UFO's are all caught up!

    I love your quilt, it is so pretty! Feedsack fabric is very special to me. My grandparents had a citrus and poultry ranch and hundreds of feedsacks. My mother had all the fabric she could use and many pretty school dresses were made from the feedsacks. Anyway, your quilt is lovely!

    Very nice job. And good score on the feedsack fabrics. I love feedsacks. I have quite a few which are mostly smaller scrap pieces. I did make a double wedding ring quilt and even used the plain offwhite ones for the background. That quilt is quite heavy. I've pretty much worn it out from use.

    Love your quilt, you did them justice!!!! What a great bargain to find them a one dollar, lucky you. You are also lucky to have your UFO's done, would you like a few more? lol

    Very soft and gentle looking. I love the way the white sets off the feed sack fabric. Your quilting complements your piecing. Thanks for sharing.
