On a summer’s evening, sunlight lters through a canopy of oaks and elms as children gather to play games. Red Light-Green Light, Simon Says, and of course, Red Rover! eir calls ring out as the grown-ups gather on the porch, enjoying time to chat aer a long day. Most of the women are stitching, the baskets at their sides lled with scraps of the feed sacks they’d sewn into curtains, aprons, and the clothing worn by their spirited children. Now those scraps will become quilts, both fancy and plain, to warm their families and friends.
Feed Sacks: Red Rover awakens memories of a time when work was hard and play was sweet. But it’s also perfect for modern times and modern quilts, as well as for skirts, tops, baby bloomers, and travel bags. Ready to sew? “Red Rover, Red Rover, Let yourself come over” and stitch up something playful and fun!
