Feedsack Friday, version 2
I am pretty sure that at this point you have all seen every feedsack I have managed to scrounge up except for one. And that one is missing. (That seems to be a recurring theme this week, eh? Jack has clearly been the number one priority in a BIG way lately.)
There are the daisies I found in a thrift sometime this summer. I think. LOL
And the wild flowers I found last year on the 127 sale somewhere in KY.
But perhaps the most interesting one in the collection is the flour sack from a local grocery store that still has it's label intact.
The label is crepe paper and dated 1959.
I know a lot of folks think of feedsacks as a 1920/1930 phenomenon, but I am pretty sure that if you google you will find that they were still in use through the 1960s.
Other feedsack fun:
This feedsack book has been on my wish list for nearly a year. It's gorgeous eye candy if you love feedsack quilts. (I've flipped through it at a local quilt shop.) And if I had a million dollars this feedsack collector book would be on my book shelf also.
I tried once this summer to go see Kit Kittredge when it was in the theater so I could see the 1930's fabrics on the big screen, but I was thwarted. I am still waiting for it on DVD to further feed my vintage fabric addiction. LOL
And don't forget to go so see Barbara who is showing her gorgeous finds and has a link to other feedsack love for today.
As for me, I have a new treasure I need to go start cleaning up and a mystery quilt I need to get sorted out so I can share it with you before quilt month is over.
