Can I get a Whoop Whoop??

Well friends and neighbors, here it is! The vintage feed sack blocks put together.

Whaddayathink?? Can I get a Whoop Whoop? I think it looks pretty cool.

I've decided to back it with unbleached muslin. Not sure about binding yet, but I'm sure I will find something.

I love, love, LOVE it! I think a red gingham bias binding or even a solid red binding would be perfect.

This is wonderful..can't beat the look and feel of a feed sack quilt. It would look great tied also..makes me think of my precious grandmother.

Turned out great. Don't forget to label the back of the quilt with where you got the blocks. At least with muslin, you don't have to make another label, you can just write on the back.

Shelly said...

Whoop Whoop! No sashing was a great idea -- it looks fabulous!

LynCC said...

Oh, my, what a glorious quilt!!! Just love those feed sack prints. I think I'd use something red to bind it with but whatever you use will be wonderful. Whoop whoop!!

Susan said...

You get a BIG whoop whoop from the Pacific Northwest!! What memories that brought back of my mother making us dresses from feed sacks. When I tell people that they look at me like I wore burlap!! Thank you for showing everyone what beautiful fabrics feed sacks were made of--and what an amazing quilt. XOXO

Thank you for your ideas on my bedroom. I do love bead board :)
