    Vintage Feed sack quilt

    This is a quilt that will be a raffle quilt for benefit of a local secondary school in November. It is Joyce Grounds pattern, Stems of Joy, from Australian Patchwork & Quilting Vol 19 No 1
    They are vintage feed sack scraps that were donated to a local thrift store.

    Love it. I hope it raises lots of money for the school.

    That's so beautiful & unique with the stems surrounding each block. I bet it will bring big $ for the school.

    Omg, that quilt is gorgeous!! Make sure to put a good minimum on the bids because whatever you get won't be enough.

    Beautiful quilt with added plus of vintage feed sack fabric. I hope it raises the $$$ it deserves for the school.

    I love the quilt. It looks so soft and appealing. Adding the vines and flowers takes it to a whole new dimension. That's a great pattern.

    Edited to add: Just curious....Did you sew all your blocks together, then add the applique and flower corners?

    What a find in the feed sack scraps!! I have been holding onto my feed sacks and afraid to even cut a small piece. This makes me want to use them for what they are intended for. A very beautiful finished quilt. I hope who ever takes home this quilt understands the quality of this quilt.

    Lovely quilt, the twined flower stems make it special. I also love the quilting, I wish I could do some flowers like that.

    Outstanding! I'd love to buy raffle tickets if I lived near you. I love the vintage feed sacks and your use of the vines and flowers was a brilliant touch. Takes it a step beyond.
