A Basket Applique by Ruby Short McKim

From the eBay grab-bag, a newspaper clipping most likely from the mid 1920's-1930's. This basket applique is by Ruby Short McKim, and the pattern was given in the exact size for the corner of a luncheon cloth (the original clippi9ng is only about seven x four inches, so this is a very small pattern). Left-click to enlarge or visit my Flickr account for a bigger image.

And if you go to the McKim Studios webpage, there is a link to a free copy of her classic 101 Patchwork Patterns to download.

That's cute and would look good on the corner of napkins
