    My neighbor stopped me in the hall and asked if I wanted to see the quilt her Grandmother made a long time ago. It is hand embroidered on flour sacks or feed sacks or muslin not sure. Here are a couple of pictures of it. The woman who did this work copied the pictures from her books.

    What a treasure she has. I remember Mama and Daddy buying the feed sacks and using flour sacks. That dates me, but as they say, Those were the good ole days!
