The center blocks of this quilt were pieced by hand by my grandmother using my mother's clothes from when she was little. A lot of them look like feed sack fabric. Grandma passed away in the early '70's before finishing this and my mother saved it until I started quilting seriously about 10 years ago. She then handed it to me with the request to finish it for her! I added the blue, red, and pieced scallop borders (trying to find either original feed sack fabric or repro's on eBay). I finished it all by hand and it took 3 years to quilt it, because I usually only quilt about 3 to 4 hours a week on my day off!
Here is the quilt:
