Old State Capitol Stitching Exhibit -Two

This is a follow up from yesterdays post about the Stitching Exhibit at the Baton Rouge Old State Capitol.

Pictured above  was my favorite Feed/Flour Sack.   I love the blue and white print!! 

Click on picture to enlarge.

It would take alot of Feed/Flour sacks to get plenty of the fabric of your choice!

So, I'm thinking I would make my dresses from my favorite fabrics.

And the left overs would go into quilts.  
That might be why so many of the old quilts are scrappy.

This is a great exhibit and there is lots of interesting material to read.

Hope you are able to come see for yourself.    

More to follow in my next post….

What a wonderful exhibit. I am sorry I won't be down there this month. Would have loved it. Thanks for sharing.

I wish flour and other grains/produce still came in printed feed sacks *sigh* I long for some of the things from yesteryear. Great post :)
