Bring Back the Flour Sack

This grandma's flower garden quilt was made by some of my female relatives in the 1930s. 
It was likely created using their old dresses and flour sacks, and the whole thing was pieced and sewed by hand, which is absolutely incredible! Some of the hexagons are torn off with wear. 
Now the cheery quilt hangs on the wall behind my computer and art desk, inspiring vintage style designs!
This is my new surface pattern design motto, and this is my start to the return of the calico!
