Totally taken in by 30’s Feedsack Prints!

Doing this quilt for Linda (via her very special friend Agnete) has been quite a changing influence in my quilting life! I have not posted any of my own quilts yet on this new blog…and why not? Because I have been totally taken by surprise by a very hard hitting interest in 30’s fabrics! So this amazingly special quilt is the inspiration for my very first blog.

I am usually buying Kaffe Fasset or Amy Butler or Patricia Bravo prints – or anything very colorful, bright and modern. But after doing this quilt with original 30’s feed sack fabrics, I am surprising even myself by buying in a new direction for my stash!

This quilt was made by Linda’s grandmother ….and let’s just say Linda is older than me and I am a new senior ; )  ….OK – I just turned 55.

The quilt had only three borders and it was very obvious it would be more ridiculous to find the same green (just not possible) to put on a forth than to have a quilt with just three borders. The muslin was somewhat permanently yellowed but not too noticeably.

Linda was so very pleased to see this all quilted and washed to a very nicely puckered traditional look when I delivered it on Saturday. And on Sunday I left for a few special days with my husband up the CA coast. Before we got to the hotel he took me to  a really nice quilt shop in Morro Bay, the Cotton Ball, and they had 30’s prints AND a 30’s pattern book AND a Dresden Paper Piecing Pattern!!! Guess who bought them all!!!

Enjoy the photos…
