Flour Sacks!

It is probably because I am working on my own quilt from patterned, vintage feed sacks, Road trip to the 1930's, that this quilt really caught my eye at the Infinite Variety show.

In this redwork quilt, each block is made from a flour sack with the company name and logo, carefully embroidered by the quiltmaker.

I thought it might be fun to try a couple of these as designs myself, so I took a few detail photos of my favorites.

Do you recognize any of these brands?  My friend says that Carnation is still using this logo.

I think it's great that redwork has made a comeback--anything to get needleworkers embroidering again is a Plus!

I love redwork and red and white quilts. Really I love any quilt.
