Sewing - A RicRac Quilt from 1953


I tried a couple of times but the scan on this keeps coming out cattywampus. Still, you get the idea! This neat, pretty spin on the Rose of Sharon quilt pattern is done in ricrac on denim. The idea comes from Smart Sewing, 7th Edition, 1953. Two pages of instructions can be downloaded from my Flickr account.

I like quilting but unfortunately I'm only a beginner.

Shay, thank you for your comment, and what a fascinating blog you have...I shall come and look again.
I look forward to finding some vintage tatting patterns. ;)

Snowy, I was inspired by your site to sit down and do some tatting last night and that Anne Orr medallion morphed into a butterfly. I'll probably post it...soon (blushes in embarassment). I'm so behind in my challenge it isn't funny.
