As I slowly come back to life from computer woes and illness, my sewing has lain dormant for too long. However, I am looking forward to an event this weekend at the Winedale Historical Complex in Round Top, Texas. It’s the Lone Star Quilt Study Group meeting featuring cotton sack quilts. I have one or two (maybe more) examples in my vintage quilt collection that I will take to share at the meeting. This will be a day trip chauffeured by my beloved Sweetie who loves antique quilts too although he thinks they are beginning to overrun the house. I will take lots of pictures to share with you.

The above photo is a feedsack quilt made by my grandmother in the 1950s. It was only a top so I quilted it for my sister using the utility or big stitch. Nothing fancy, but a quilt made with love.
Until next time,
