I scored some wonderful old quilt pattern books in a thrift store recently. These probably came from the same person's stash.
The yellow one is from the 70s, but the other books are undated. I assume they are from the 60s from the hairdo of the woman on the cover. My cousin Peggy, who was a teenager when I was in elementary school, wore her hair just like this. I thought it was very elegant.
There are some wonderful applique patterns in this book.
Wouldn't this bucking bronco be cute for a child?
This is a nice variation on the house pattern.
The caption at the top of the page reminds us of how some things have (thankfully) changed.
