Check out these original feed sack fabrics!
These are the REAL DEAL! And I love seeing them being sewn up into such a beautiful quilt.
Our quilter said she had been collecting feed sacks for DECADES and it was time to start sewing with them.
She is using plain ordinary old muslin as her background, and it suits these fabrics well. It matches the era that they came from. I also love the odd colors that we find in real feed sacks that we just don’t find in reproductions on the bolt. The odd balls make this quilt sing!
Blocks coming together! This is going to be awesome!
It was a very fun day, sponsored by Mountain Creek Quilt Shop of Greenback, Tennessee and we had visitors from all over the area in to sew.
Check out Jodi’s Cranberry Featherweight baby! Whoowhooo!
Jodi is the owner of Whistle Stop Quilt Retreat in Sweetwater, Tennessee, a gorgeous 150 year old farm house that has been turned into a fabulous retreat center with room to sleep 18 guests and accommodate all sewing needs!
Jodi was kind enough to cater our lunch yesterday:
How CUTE is this?!
Lunch in Jars!
Mine was completely gluten free, nice! And I loved how she served everything in canning jars – chicken salad, yogurt with fresh fruit, gluten free crackers and a gluten free scotch-a-roo yummy for dessert. Her attention to detail made lunch a really fun break in our sewing day.
Our ladies sewed and sewed and sewed, and the most beautiful blocks of all combinations were soon coming together.

This morning I am packing it up and headed to Kentucky!
It's a beautiful day for a road trip. I've got Shamu almost loaded, and I'll be heading out as soon as I hit send on this post. I hope to be meeting many of you at the Sewing Expo being sponsored by the University of Kentucky Extension Service, being held at General Butler State Resort Park outside of Carrollton, Kentucky.
Have a great Sunday, everyone!
