I'm not sure where they came from but there were over 30. They appear to be 1930's feed sack fabrics. I even had some feed sacks to use for the backing. (still have some left, too) I looked in lots of books but never could identify the pattern. They were all hand sewn and done very well. I'd love to add the machine to my workroom, too.

Very useful info on how to store bits and bites, which of course means you'll actually be able to USE those bits and bites for something useful. I need to put a really long video on in my sewing room, and start cutting those useful squares... I think my first project from my stash will be table runners using fall/christmas fabrics. I have a lot of them from various projects, so think it will be easy to come up with enough for a project.

I love my Threads Magazine and enjoy the ideas in it.
