A Finished 1930s Quilt and a Taupe Start

As promised here are the two machine pieced quilts I have been working on lately.
The first is a 1930s quilt. 

In fact it is made with authentic American Feedsack fabrics for the 30s that 
I purchased from the States. The yellow is new fabric but typical of the yellow 
used at this time. ere are some close-ups so you can see the fabrics more clearly.

I have machine pieced and quilted this cot quilt - 32" by 44".

This is the new machine project I have started. And it is a welcome
return to my all time favourite fabrics - Japanese woven taupes.
It is great to use a variety of fabrics and to make quilts in a variety 
of styles, but Iove returning to my taupe collection.

This will be a big quilt - the block is 8" finished.

Back soon, Robyn


  1. Great to see some feeds sack fabrics. I have been meaning to ask you if you found any. Love the history. Great quilt.

  2. Something about those Japanese Taupe fabrics just keep pulling you in. Right with you there.

  3. Can you bring your feed sack quilt into PP today so we can see it this afternoon ?

  4. Beautiful quilt! So happy to see you love Japanese Taupe fabrics. I love them too!
