Flour Sack Quilt

2:44 PM

Every year at my grandparent's Christmas Eve party, we have a gift exchange--white elephant style. Everyone one is supposed to bring a $10 gift to put in the pile. You draw a number, when it is your turn you can choose to open a gift or steal a gift from someone else. We have a rule each item can only be stolen twice.

Well each year my Grandma puts in two quilts for herself and Grandpa...way better than a $10 gift. You can imagine how these quilts are fought over during the game. Well this year I was lucky enough to have the chance to take home one of the prized quilts she'd made.

She made the quilt from holiday flour sacks. In our area, there is a flour mill that sells baking mixes in fabric holiday print bags. They are great neighbor gifts, and apparently my Grandma had received a lot. She saved all these fabric bags and decided to make a quilt out of them. She did use an actual flour sack in the center that has the mill info on it.
It is hand quilted, with a solid ever-green backing. I took a DVD to the party, but took off with a handmade quilt!
