1930 Reproduction Prints ~ Feed Sack Prints ~ Retro

There here !  Take your pick.

My Grandmother In Laws inspired me to learn how to quilt.  They had lots of a quilts they had made entirely by hand with feed sacks.  If you're not familiar with this ~ a Feed Sack is a large cloth bag that the food would come in to feed the livestock.  When it was done they saved the cloth sack & made quilts with the fabric.  Surprisingly enough, these sacks were made with brightly colored floral fabrics. 

 

Today Moda designers, like American Jane & Chloe's Closet, recreate prints that are reminiscent of these feed sack fabrics from years ago.  They are truly some of my favorites & I'm always adding to my collection of swatches to keep on hand.
