Happy New Year!!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!  Thanks for making 2013 a great one for Hollyhock Quilts.  We are back to selling feedsacks and vintage fabric in a big way and you can expect more of the same for 2014.  I hope you'll stay in touch!

I thought I'd end the year showing you some fun novelty sacks I recently listed on eBay.  The first one has all kinds of houses!  Lighthouses, windmills, palaces, city houses, country houses and more!  It's fun to use these prints on the back of small pieces or cut them up and use them with alternating blocks.

The next one is a toile print depicting characters reminiscent of "Gone with the Wind"!  Are you surprised they did toiles in feedsacks?

I love this next piece.  Swirling houses surrounded by tornadoes!  A lot of people think this is how OK looks all the time.

I am always amazed at the talent the designers had back in the day when feedsacks were being produced!

Have a Wonderful New Year!  See you in 2014~
