Clip | 5m 44s

Christine Motl shares stories about her collection of antique feed sacks used to make quilts. From a campaign for governor in 1938 and other patriotic WWII designs to whimsical Disney designs—she knows the stories behind each. Feed sacks, which also encompass flour and sugar sacks, are soft and yield about 1-1/4 yd. of usable fabric for quilting and other sewing projects.
