    Looks like many of the fabrics were "salvaged"

    It lays flatly.

    There are 42 total - as far as I can tell, there are no holes in any of them.

    I did notice that three of them had small stains on them. (There may be more, but that's all I noticed when going through them.)

    Oh my, that is beautiful. What a great quilt they would make. What are your plans for them?

    I would like to sell them - but right now I have three or four unsold things in the classifieds - and I don't want to overdo a good thing.

    Pretty. I have some similar to that but mine didn't lay flat. Had to re-sew a lot of them. Aren't the vintage fabrics fun!

    I made a feedsack lap quilt for my greatniece and it's always very nostalgic working with them. My SIL gave me about 20 large size ones. Treasures.
    Yep, I did wear homemade feedsack undies, made by my Mom, when I was small. The older they got the softer they were.
    BIG if you do decide to sell them, let us know. I might have a NEED for them. Something to help me coming down from completing the Texas Jane.

    Very nice. I have to ask where did you get them from or were they yours already?

    My Mom acquired them on one of her travels. I'm reasonably sure she did not make them.

    I had never seen them before we were going through her stuff after she died.

    I miss her. She was such a talented woman. (She's a tough act to follow.)

    Oh dear bearisgray ... I am sorry for your loss. I know what you mean about missing your mom. Mine is gone too. But, I always smile when I think of her now. The things she said to me and the things she did for me live in my memory gently now. When I get sad, I change my thoughts to remember those good times.
    Now I pass it forward to my little ones in my life for thier memories when I am gone.

    I love the blocks by the way. They sure are some nice old fabrics. Wouldn't it make a cool framed picture or pillow?
