Feed sack quilt

I have this book called Sugar Sack Quilts, which has quite a few really cute quilts using feed sacks or repro fabrics from the 30s-50s. I liked this one and decided to make it as my first project from the book. I used feed sacks I got on ebay a few years back.
On the edges I used a crocheted lace and topped it with tiny lime green rick-rack.

It needs to be ironed before it's quilted, but here is the finished product. Someday it will find its way onto my kitchen wall, but who knows when? To keep the look authentic, I used black thread to embroider the flowers on. Overall, it was a quick and fun quilt to make.
