A FAVORITE POST
One of my favorite posts and discussions at The Inbox Jaunt was September’s post on Feed Sacks. The stories and comments generated were quite nostalgic and often funny. (I loved the stories about the teenage boy clerks who would have to move bags and bags of meal in order to get the right fabric for the ladies…) All of the stories were filled with history and Americana–thank you to all who shared!
PEGGY, THE PAPER-PIECING GURU, AGREED
Peggy was also impressed by the memories garnered by the feed sack photos and was inspired to create this fabulous paper piecing pattern for us.
Note from Peggy:
I did a quick full-sized line drawing for the War Eagle Mill feed sack. No color chart, no individual templates, but a simple plan that fits on 4 pages to finish at 12 ” x 16″. There are 6 pages in this PDF. The first is a color page, then 4 pages for the line drawing, and last is the template for the water with the original text superimposed on it for people to (trace and) sew as text outlines if they wish… A real FMQ project ! This probably all that’s necessary, though I can do a detailed plan like the others, if you wish.
The house and the wheat above will be a fun project for the Fall. I hope you enjoy this gorgeous pattern…

We have a busy week ahead–so get your bed made, and the rest of the house, too!
I think you’ll want to be stitching!
Let’s change the (quilting world)…one bed at a time!
