Old quilts "Scrappy Star" (Granny Joyner)


This quilt (Scrappy Star) was actually in the garbage bag at Pa and Granny Joyner's. I rescued it! The points of the stars are scrappy pieced and much of the fabric in the quilt (front and back) are feed sacks. I love how the coarse appearance of the feed sacks is softened both by the age of the cotton and the cheery, naive prints.


Isn't the little horse with cross stitch cute? 


The back is made of pieced feed sacks and Granny Joyner used tobacco twine to quilt in in her fan design, and as with all her quilts, completely hand-made.

OOOOH! I missed these. You have a great little collection and they are family related. ps. I am excited for you and your Mom to be having your own quilt show.
