Feed Sack Quilts
Happy Tuesday to you. Until last Friday, I had no idea what Feed Sacks looked like; in fact, I thought they were old burlap sacks filled with corn and wheat-these are actually called Guniesacks. I knew many had ads printed on them, but had no idea they were often cotton fabrics. I was so surprised to see they flower prints on the feed sacks. Some of these quilts have blocks from decades ago and feed sack fabrics intermingled. I think the purple in the first one was feed sack material.
I absolutely love this next quilt!
Tablecloths often were used for the backing due to their size.
We still have more to see and I'l finish up tomorrow.
Have a great day! Noreen
