Feed sacks are the perfect example of a utilitarian product turned into something beautiful. Author Linzee Kull McCray explores the history of the humble feed sack, from a plain cotton sack to exuberantly patterned and colorful bags that were repurposed into frocks, aprons, and quilts by thrifty housewives in the first half of the twentieth century. Extensive imagery and at-scale reproductions of these fabrics create an inspiring sourcebook of pattern and color--and offer a welcome visit to the days of yesteryear. No patterns included.

Family History found in quilt shop

I am from Kansas and grew up on stories of my grandmother using the feed and flour sacks to make clothing and quilts. We have preserved many of her blocks and felt like we were doing family history when we found this book on your shelf. Thank you for introducing us to this. We wouldn't have known about it otherwise.
