Now on Etsy...


Here is the piece I had been referring to as the Depression quilt. I have formally named it "A Small Story," and it is now on Etsy.
The size is 31" x 22"

Chris, this is a great piece. I think it really captures the time -- the types of needlework women would do, the black and white photos, and the soft colors of the feed sacks. I always picture everything from that time as being black and white, but then I recall going through some of my grandmother's textiles with those colors -- those innocent colors are in such contrast to the reality of the times.

Oh this is wonderful! I love the flour sacking and the dainty patchwork prints.

I'm admiring the composition and execution on this piece. How did you transfer the text to the fabric?
