Feed sack or feedbag quilts were created from cotton sacks used to package dry goods and other commodities, particularly during the Great Depression. In the mid-1800s, many companies began transporting grains and feed in cotton sacks, many of which featured circular logos and other designs. Once the products inside the sacks were used, many women would use the sturdy cotton fabric in their quilting projects. This practice continued well into the 1960s. Capitalizing on the women’s thriftiness, many companies started to market their goods by producing feed sacks with more intricate prints. Today, making feed sack quilts is a popular way to tap into quilting traditions as feedsacks are available through vintage shops and reproduction fabrics recreate the prints popular during the Depression.
