MORE COTTON BAG GOODIES
Karen Shultz, a member of the Small Quilt Talk Yahoo Group, shared the following poem with that group that goes along with my cotton bag quilt post of yesterday. She has graciously allowed me to share it with you on my blog.
It’s entitled “THE FLOUR SACK” by COLLEEN B. HUBERT. READ THE POEM HERE courtesy of the Clark County, WI Internet Library. I remember well my Dad talking about his feed sack shirts and such.
For additional photographs of cotton bag clothing and information, I found this on the internet – CLICK HERE.
The quilt below is another of my feed sack quilts purchased at an antique mall in Mansfield, Texas several years ago. It goes by many names, but most prominently it’s know as the Arkansas Snowflake.
Here is a link to an about.com quilting page with a pattern for a small doll sized quilt using this pattern.
