    Flour/Feed Sack Quilt

    My friend's mother, who lives in Illinois, sent her this fabric. But, she doesn't sew, hence, it came my way. I decided to make her mother a quilt with her own fabrics. The pattern is Fresh Tradition and is a free download. I did use my own "modern" blue fabric on it since I needed a solid. I used warm and natural batting and backed it with fleece. Enjoy!Name:  image.jpg

    Wow....i really really like this one. While the blocks are "simple" - it makes a such great pattern....and your combination of the warm colored florals with the cool blue makes this just pop. The is sure to make her mom happy. Another pattern added to my wanna do list !!

    PS....the quilt underneath is no slouch either !!!
    Of all the things i've lost, i miss my mind the most.

    That is a very refreshing looking quilt you have made with colors I usually do not go for. Love the pattern too.

    Very pretty. These fabrics remind me of my Grandmother's aprons.

    Really pretty. Your blue matches perfectly, like it was meant to be. What a wonderful thing you've done.

    That looks great!

    Beautiful quilt!
    I can't tell if there is any quilting in the border. W&N needs to be quilted 10" apart. You might want to think about adding a few straight lines if there's no other quilting.

    Oh what a great lap quilt! It is right from the era she is from, so she should be thrilled to get it. What a wonderful thing you have done for her. Right on quilting sister!

    really like the design the blocks make!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
