    Hi there,

    I wish I had time right now. I had been looking for the Mother Goose Land quilt pattern. I had inherited the marked top but non of the material or the key to how to stitch it.

    In my internet search I found a quilt library at one of the heartland universities - Kansas, maybe. There were litteraly tons of quilt patterns available to look at.

    Yes, I found info on what I was looking for and a site to buy what was needed.

    Let your fingers do the waliking ... or ask your librarian for any books on quilts from that era [there is interlibrary loan.]

    Good luck,
    ali

    I have a book called "Link to the '30's: Making the Quilts We Didn't Inherit," by Kay Connors and Karen Earlywine. Each pattern is based on either a pattern from the 1930's or a newspaper column that printed quilt block patterns in the 1930's. They show a scan of the pattern/article and give a little history. The quilts are gorgeous...some well beyond my skill level, but my absolute favorite fabrics and designs. The book is beautiful just to read!

    The most common I recall is Sunbonnet Sue. Darlene Zimmerman has a great one with Fat quarter small quilts. She also has Quilting the complete guide that shows exactly how to make the quilts in this book. Personally I love them.

    What patterns do you have for Nancy Page? I have some of the birds she did. They are cute in the 30's reproductions.

    I am planning to do one called Grace's Spools that is shown in that type of fabric.

    Hi there, Your quilt is beautiful. Did you have a pattern for it, or did you make it up yourself?
