As I was sorting and packaging fabric I just couldn’t resist pulling fabrics for Uncle Sam!
The original quilt is so old, I think we used muslin for the background. Remember I told you I couldn’t locate the quilt? Still haven’t found it so I’m going to make another one. If you’re interested, this Uncle Sam on a Bike is in our online store.
And this, my friends, is the original quilt kit by Country Threads – we purchased woven madras plaid fabric at retail price, cut it into 9″ squares and my mom packaged it for us. Then we wrote patterns to accommodate the amount of fabric in the bag. We were ahead of everybody and didn’t even know it!!! Haha!
It’s been a real trip down memory lane sorting through 40 years of stuff!
