Feedsack Wall Hanging

Put this little wall hanging together with two of the Mama's Feedsack fabrics, including one of those cutie plaids:


The yellow and orange fabrics are vintage from the Depression era. They are from a quilt top that I bought on eBay several years ago that has a gazillion HSTs in those two colors with blue and white embroidered pictures on varying sized blocks scattered randomly among the yellow-orange blaze. I've been gradually using pieces from it, in a small wall hanging and in a dress bodice and now this piece. The quilt top was shock itself as an entirety, but I love the individual pieces used elsewhere.

That is a great idea for using an old worn out quilt. The little quilt is so cute!

You're right, those plaids are irrestible.I don't know why I don't make little projects, they're so cute, but everything I do seems to jsut grow and grow.

Hi Karen, congratulations on the new job...you sure could cut fabric for me *VBS* You look soooo cute! Love the nametag too!
I like what you are doing with the vintage fabric. There really is not reason not to use it as you see fit. That's what will bring the enjoyment.
About the new fabrics from Mama's Feedsacks(which I love by the way) and using the plaids...how about that little cookie cutter size Scottie pattern for appliqued Scotties that Little Quilts put out a while back?? I think Scotties would look adorable in those plaids!
Love your tea cozy too! You are one busy girl!! Better stay busy so you don't murder that dear, dear DS after the ticket! Hugs, Finn

Another lovely project. The sunray fans are so appropriate for the authentic vintage fabric.
