There's something about quilts made from feedsack reproduction fabric that transcends generations. If you are planning an Heirloom Quilt, feedsack fabrics definitely need to be a consideration! 
I think part of the appeal with modern sewists is the use of negative space (generally white or cream muslin in the past) that makes these older-looking quilts seem timeless!

The Farmer's Wife ~ 1930s Sampler Quilt

Featuring real-life letters from The Farmer's Wife magazine, Laurie Aaron Hird's book commemorates the strength and hope of the farm women of the Great Depression.
For each block, instructions are provided for template piecing, and--where applicable--rotary cutting, so readers can piece the blocks based on their preferred technique.
The 99-block queen-size sampler quilt inspired by these letters uses reproduction 1930s fabrics.
