Back then there was not near all the magazines, etc available about quilting. I was probably in my late 20's at least and possibly 30's before there was many. So, when mom wanted a pattern, she came up with it herself. There was no magazine, no quilt shop to go to. Back then it was such a big deal to us if one of the women's magazine featured a quilt.
Anyway, we got the other bedroom back together yesterday, and I was thinking when I come across the box of bits and pieces of patterns, that I will just give them a pitch. No one else will want them, and I don't get them out once a year even. But looking at this pic, I am not sure I can let them go. Quilting was mom's one hobby. She really loved to quilt, and would talk about how good a quilt would feel on a cold winter night. She made some thinking how pretty they would be, but I think she enjoyed making quilts and thinking how they would keep her family warm.
So, now I don't know if I can let go of them or not.
