Over 100 beautiful quilt block patterns, star quilt patterns, and more original designs are illustrated and described in this classic book that was originally published in 1931 and 1962.
Here's an excerpt of the book before the 101 quilt patterns:
Study the names of patterns and again you will know they were so christened by young ladies of imagination, sometimes devout, sometimes droll but always kindled by that divine spark of originality. Listen to this for a less-than-500-word history, all quilt names stitched in bed coverlets, which are more comforting, if not more enduring, than words graven in stone:
"London Roads, Ocean Wave, Lost Ship, Star and Compass; Charter Oak, Lafayette Orange Peel, Tail of Benjamin's Kite; Turkey Tracks, Bear's Paw, Indian Hatchet; Washington Pavement and Washington's Plumes; Dolly Madison Block, Whig Rose, Democrat Rose, Philadelphia Beauty, Virginia Star, Georgetown Circle; Horn of Plenty--Hovering Hawks! Mill Wheel, Churn Dash, Tea Leaves, Anvil, Brown Goose, Chips and Whetstones, Clamshell, Corn and Beans, the Log Cabin, Arrowheads. The Pine Tree and the Little Beech, Folded Love Letter, Swing-in-the-Center, Eight Hands 'Round'; Free Trade Block, 54-40 or Fight, Tippecanoe and Tyler Too, Clay's Choice, Little Giant, Mexican Rose, Lincoln's Platform.

We have not shown them all, only a hundred or so of them are contained in our pages, but we have found bits of interesting history about these and drafted patterns from which you can copy them. We have estimated the yardage, suggested ways of setting blocks together into tops and planned suitable quilting designs.
During years of experience there have been questions come to us concerning every phase of quilt making. We have tried to answer them all in this book, to tell you every practical, helpful angle in the game of quilt making."
