Vintage Find – Feed Sacks and More

Vintage Quilt


Last Saturday, I sold books, craft stuff and more at my sister’s yard sale.  However, some of my earnings went to the antique shop next door where I bought this vintage quilt!





Vintage Quilt with solid heavy muslin back



Half of the squares looked like feed sack fabric.  The back was a plain heavy muslin.



The quilt was machine stitched without batting.

I couldn’t resist some of these cute blocks!

And the border fabric was pretty awesome, too!  My plan was to cut the quilt into squares, right through the back.





Pioneer Feed sack



My quilting buddy, suggested that I take the time to rip out the stitches instead of cutting it through all the layers.

After a few minutes of ripping, the inside of the quilt revealed that the backing fabric was made of Pioneer Feed Sacks!  Cool!

I now have a deconstructed quilt!


The other fabrics were probably from clothing or bedspreads, however, some look very modern!

All of them were marked with a pen and cut with a scissor.


There are some minor stains but all the fabric is pristine and no wear on the seams.

For now, the fabric will be added to my pile of vintage fabric, waiting for a burst of energy from me to sew it back together!  Wish me luck!
