    The seller has edited her original listing. She originally said she wanted to sell it as a lot but would be willing to sell 1-4 patterns for $100. If you look at the first few posts here, Greenheron posted she sent an inquiry about it and the subject line was 500 patterns for $1000

    The "Cross and Crown" one I recognize the drawing from a book my mom had, copyright 1980. They may be from the 1930's originally, but the envelopes would be yellow, and so would the tape and/or glue that the pictures are on the envelopes with. You are talking about 80 years plus. If you invest in the book "5500 Quilt Block Designs" for about $20.00 used, you will get a much better deal.

    it looks like they are copied on too paper and then put into envelopes and the templates are made up too. i'm wondering if they have made up more then one copy and are selling a bunch of them

    Looks like patterns from Cappers Weekly. A paper published in Kansas. Not sure how many years they had quilt patterns in their paper, but I bought some around ten years ago from them

    Update on the patterns: I received an email from the poster and I quote:

    I wanted to tell you that all these come with the templates and the price is actually 200 for all. I wasnt sure if you were interested or if you knew someone.

    I replied that a group of quilters were discussing the ad.

    I don't know what you all are reading, I see 500 patterns for $500. Either way, they are to easy to come by to pay that kind of money for.

    I just bought the Jinny Bayer book that has 4000+ patterns for not too much. What are these people thinking? I'm going to assume it's a non-quilting person who thinks they've hit a gold mine.

    I live in OK, also, and years back (maybe 70's and 80's?), our OK rural electric monthly magazine had quilt patterns you could get free by sending a long SASE. The patterns look exactly like the pictures, just photocopies they mailed out to you. Someone must have made the envelopes to store them and templates for them and then kept them MUCH neater than I kept mine! They were free at the time, and really not anything special, but remember that was PRE-internet and we had to keep ourselves amused in other ways. Anyone wants to pay that much $$, let me know and I'll hunt mine up and real quick make a plastic template. LOL!
