    I was at the second hand store today and found four quilting patterns. These were free with the Mountain Mist Fillings for quilts. They date back to the 30"s.I got NY beauty dated 1930, Martha's Vineyard, The Double Wedding Ring 1931, & Pieced Squares-1932. I would say overall for age there in near mint condition. There one very large sheet.

    Eleanor Burns shows those kinds of things on her show often. She collects old patterns from batting. Some of them are very neat.

    You found a treasure. A lot of people are now looking for and collecting the old freebees that came with batting and in newspapers, etc. Not only collecting them but making them into quilts. I for one love the old traditional patterns.

    I have heard about them but never seen one. It was a nice idea of the company.

    I have a collection of these patterns. I am just a couple shy of having all of them.

    Stearns and Foster is selling reprints of all of them for about $4 each.

    mine are all originals...somehow I like them better...even though there really is no difference in the pattern..

    Isnt it fun to find them? Congrats to you

    I actually remember those patterns from when I started quilting ... but it wasn't as far back as the 30's as my folks hadn't even met and I wasn't even a twinkle til much later.

    One of my quilt guilds had a program from Mountain Mist and it was awesome. I highly recommend having them if you can.

    I remember those to, I would love to see them if possible. I haven't seen any of these in a really long time. Wish they would do them again.

    I have one laid out right now that I am considering. I made it once doing everything by hand while I was riding with my hubby for a week once. These are great patterns.

    Could you possibly take a photo of them ?-maybe layed out on table fairly close up so we all can see. I wouldn't know what they are if I did see some. I am working with a 1959
    Mc Call pattern now but it was NOT free.

    Great find!!! I have several of my grandmother's quilt patterns from newspapers and Mtn. Mist. I need to dig them out and have a look at exactly what I do have.
