Flour Sack Prints

More fabric to add to my stash of 'flour sack' prints. My collection of this type of fabric has grown over the years and now that I have a grand-daughter in need of more 'daycare' quilts -- I think it will be put to good use.
I do remember my Mom making aprons out of the original flour sack material - with a family of five children, and being a 'bread baker' -- flour was purchased in those very large fabric sacks. Now, every time I see these prints -- in my minds eye, I can see one of Mom's aprons hanging on a peg by the our kitchen door.
By the way -- the blue fabric is called: 'Wash Day' !
