This baby quilt top is made using the old traditional Double Pinwheel block. I used a large variety of 30s fabric scraps to make it. The fabrics are all reminiscent of those you might have found as feed sacks during that period in our history.
Women made many a dress or apron or piece of child's clothing from the material of the bags that the men brought feed home in. I can just imagine all these scraps being the leftovers after the woman of the house sewed first dresses, then aprons, and finally used her collection of small pieces she had remaining to construct this baby quilt possibly for the anticipated arrival of the newest member of her large farm family.
Next on my agenda . . . sandwiching and quilting.
