There aren't many people I know who would get excited about quilting except for my friends here, so I wanted to share. This afternoon for some reason I decided to go through my drawers on my 1920-something National Two Spool treadle (that I probably own now for about 4 years!), and I came across something I didn't know was there. Original newspaper clippings/advertisements from the 1930's of quilting patterns by Laura Wheeler. I was SO excited to find out that the last person who owned this machine was also a quilter! I absolutely loved this machine, but now I love it even more.
These are the patterns: Old-fashioned Nosegay, Setting Sun, Lover's Knot, Radiant Star, Wheel of Fortune, and Whirling Star. They aren't the patterns, just the advertisements for them, and I bet they could probably be easily reproduced on EQuilt. I am having problems downloading the three scans, but I will try to re-send again if anyone's interested in seeing them.
