The Pat's Sacks booth was filled with a vast array of feed sacks, feed cloth, old patterns printed by various companies and this beautiful quilt made by her mother.
Hours later I looked inside the bag the hand printed tag written on it was feed sack scraps 1933 how serendipitous, the quilt was made in 1933. Over the years I have come across several feed sacks, some deteriorated and other nearly pristine, mostly I find small scrap pieces, what stays with me is the durability of these bags, the cotton fabric soft with age, many of the colors still crisp as if they were printed yesterday. When I stepped into Pat's Sacks I was amazed with the selection she had with her, full size bags, pieces of bags in all sizes, and scraps too.
I didn't leave the vendor empty handed I picked up a few pieces that caught my eye mostly with a shade of purple.
The pieces reminds me so much of the Aunt Grace reproduction 1930's fabric

I did visit all of other vendors at the quilt show and made a few purchases here and there, this fun panel which will most likely be mug mats some time or a tote bag.
A whimsical Lorelei panel because I just love them
A pattern using embroidery which will be put on the to embroider pile I am slowly making
And before I close my post today I will leave you with a few more photos from the quilt show.
The leaves of my sycamore tree are fast falling to the ground, brown and brittle and swirling in the air like fairies whenever the breeze picks up, the neighbor across the street has a sycamore tree and his leaves blow into my front yard daily, but by the end of the day they are gone, many are gathered beneath a shrub or piled in a corner of the back yard slowly rotting away once again becoming part of the garden.
