New old fabric

Last week my mom went to Iowa for her best friends wedding. She stayed at the home she grew up in and while she was there she found some fabrics that were her mothers. I'm hoping to incorporate some of them into the quilt I'll be starting soon for my sister and eventually into one for myself. They were originally feed bags. I'm still amazed that back in the day things like flour, sugar and feed for animals were sold in bags made from fabrics like this.
