My old quilts pt 3 (Farm house)

I call this one my "Farm House Quilt." 

I bought it at auction 25 years ago for $20. I love the blocks with the blue striped shirting, as well as the fact the quilter arranged like blocks in rows. 

My favorite part of this quilt is the back. It is made of feed sacks! 

The prints are so cheery with happy little farm animals and flowers. This quilt was well-used before I got it and we have continued to use it since.

What a fun little quilt. I am glad that you use it and don't tuck it away in a trunk. THe backing look like its from the 50's. Bonnie
