The fabrics came from worn out clothing or maybe even feedsacks and possibly date from the depression or even earlier. This is the same family that was the source of the two boy’s diaries from 1876 I transcribed.
While working on the quilt, I was listening to CNN this morning about how a family could thrive on one income and it suggested making coffee at home and using coupons. I rarely see coupons for stuff we use. Mostly coupons are for prepared foods or snacks. I have never ever seen one for a bag of flour.
Tonight we are having homemade flour tortillas.
