Vintage Thingies Thursday Quilt

Coloradolady at http://coloradolady.blogspot.com is big on quilts. This feature today is to share one of my vintage quilts with her and all her VTT participates.
This quilt is all hand pieced and hand quilted. Made back during the depression days when people used feed and flour sacks for material. No store fabric then.

Trying to show more details on the sacks that were used.

Hi LV, I love the vintage quilt.The feed and flour sacks had pretty patterns. I love the blue sack with the plates and the pink sack with the children. This is very special LV, thanks for sharing it.

Well, those are the prettiest feed sacks i have ever seen! I didn't know they looked like this, I thought they were all burlap!

Nani said...

I wonder if they made the feed sacks with this after use in mind? Lovely prints on this!

This is so neat! I bet the women who stitched these together never realized they'd be making a part of history. And how well it is held up for all those years!

I love this! We sure were thinking the same thing this week. It's hard to imagine that such pretty prints actually held flour. So precious and full of good memories. Thanks for sharing this jewel.

Any quilt with red is a stupendous quilt!

WHERE RED ABIDES

A day filled with scarlet, they say,
Can make the sad heart skip and play;
For where red abides,
A little bird hides
And sings every worry away.

HV, Love the quilt. Brings back memories. I was post depression but I remember my Mom making dresses for me from flour sacks. She would purchase the same pattern until she had enough fabric for a dress. Wow, memories. Hugs, Ginger
