Vintage thingy Thursday - quilt pattern booklet


Grandmother Clark's Patchwork quilt designs, now rather fragile.  No publication date.

A peek at some of the patterns inside - plus other paper patterns that the previous owner had clipped and saved.  The old patterns are still appealing!  Some of the latest books and magazines are publishing very similar patterns today.

I am joining Colorado Lady for Vintage thingy Thursday.  She is sharing some great Christmas-y things today.

I know nothing about quilt patterns. All I know is that I love and want all quilts. These are great treasures for a quilter.

It's fun to look at the old books even though you can see the patterns in new books too.

What a great treasure and how neat that you also have other patterns saved by the previous owner, too. It gives you a little peek into someone's life, doesn't it? Happy VTT!

What a great find! And I so love it when old books have notes and clippings in them, gives me a lump in my throat, so precious.

Happy VTT,
Sally
