I have been asked by a few followers if I am making every block. Wish I could but as I think, I'd like to make this one, I go ahead and do it.
Here are my blocks from January, February and March.
From top to bottom, left to right:
|Rambler 2 January|
|Squares and Triangles 5 January|
|Coffee Cups 6 January|
|Winged Four Patch 9 January|
|Steps to the Altar 17 January|
|Spider Web 23 January|
|Ladies' Aid 2 February|
The "T" quilt block is simple enough in composition, but its chief attraction is in carefully matching all the corners.
I shall call this Mrs. Anderson's Quilt. It has always been called that because our neighbor, Mrs. Anderson, made it when I was a little girl.
Mrs. Steiger kept after me about the name for this quilt and continually referred to it as "that very pretty new one that ought to have a pretty name," so I called it Alice's Quilt for her.
An Easy Applique Hickory Leaf - I am naming this quilt just that. It is easy and would be improved by having all blocks appliqued instead of half of them plain. And it should have more applique on the border. It has a historical name but that is too involved for my space. I suggest you make it in two different shades of one color or two contrasting colors. Pattern 35 cents.
The Mayflower Quilt - The first four quilts in this catalog are each over 100 years old. This is one of the prettiest quilts I ever saw and Mrs. Ericson whose hobby is historical quilts, found a picture just like it listed as a pattern that came over on the Mayflower in 1620.
My Australian friend Myrtle Smith of Melborne (sp.) made this quilt ... The Australians are marvelous needle women. They take sewing seriously. Needle-workers have clubrooms, publish a monthly bulletin, and have teachers who give lessons on different kinds of embroidery, quilting, etc. certain days - afternoon or morning. There is a schedule that they follow. My friend, Mrs. Smith lends them her lovely home each year for a quilt show and they make money for charity on that, besides the pleasure they have.
