    I have a collection of Aunt Martha's old/traditional quilt patterns. I refer to them all the time.

    I made 2 applique quilts using Patterns from Mountain Mist batts. (Yes, I am Old!) Have 2 sets of the Aunt Martha booklets and have made some of those quilts, too. Love the old stuff to this day.

    patterns are awesome.>
    I remember seeing them printed on the bags about 15 years ago. Don't remember them printed on paper. They might have had the pix on the bag and the paper instructions inside. I do recall contacting the company for one the store had sold out of and they snail mailed it to me.

    Isnt it fun to find them? Congrats to you
    Thank you, do you know how many they made? Kinda funny, I use to collect the Laure Wheeler, Anne Cabot, so onvintage
    crocther patterns.
    Well just from memory, there were around 130 different patterns dating from about 1929 into the 1960s. I have a copy of a complete listing in my historical pattern collection. Ill try to locate it and give you more information. All of the patterns were not quilt patterns, some were quilting designs.

    All patterns were not available in the batting, some were mail ordered using a coupon that was printed on the freeby.

    I looked online as I found them all still available a couple of years ago. Now I see them exclusively sold by one web site and they dont have them all. They also have a new book out about the patterns and it includes some of the designs.

    If you are a serious collector, PM me and Ill email you a digital copy of the index of patterns.

    Yes I remember well, this is what my mother used. I did get all mom's sewing/craft stuff. Yesterday I ran across & crib size quilt I made in grade school. Boy is it worn all over, I would say beyond repair. Blocks are of kittens done with liquid embrodery.
