feed sack & vintage quilts

These pins are not mine, unless I say so. If not a good website please remember to delete or spam them. Thanks and have fun!

If the word "feedsack" conjures up thoughts of burlap, then you probably weren't around before 1960. From the mid 1920s through the beginning of the 1960s, products bought in bulk were packaged in colorful sacks made from cotton. And even though they are collectively referred to as feedsacks, the most common products packaged in the sacks were flour and sugar. In many areas, the fabric was referred to as "chicken linen."
