Flour Sack Strip Quilt

Jean Bray – a sister quilter in our guild – gave me these “scraps” of fabrics she had left over from a quilt she had made. The “scraps” are pieces of feed sacks - probably from the early 1900’s.

I used the pieces of fabric just as they were given to me. I didn’t cut them, just designed the quilt based on the fabrics as they were. Long narrow strips of fabric are referred to as “strings."

Anyone who knows Jean, appreciates her sense of humor. It is this sense of humor that endears her to me. In keeping with her sense of humor, I respectfully (and lovingly) named the quilt “String Jean.”

This quilt is a great mixture of old and new. The design and quilting would be considered modern, yet the fabric is older than the maker of the quilt.
