A reader, Debbie is looking for a specific pattern from long ago. Here's her query:
I am have some pieces of quilting patterns that I am trying to research to see if I could find the complete pattern for. It is my understanding that back in the 1930's a lot of the patterns were ran in newspapers. I was told that the patterns I'm looking for were a Nancy Lee design from the Home Art Studios in Des Moines, Iowa probably from the 1930's. I read that it ran in the House of White Birches magazines and was called A Most Charming Boy's Quilt but then I was told that wasn't a Home Art name, but the name of a magazine. I have attached a copy of what pieces I have from the pattern I'm looking for. If you could help me in anyway in my research for this pattern I would appreciate it. I was told there was also a pattern that went with it for little girls also. The shoe pattern is also a pattern I am researching for. It seems to be quite an endeavor. I can send copies of what I have to try to identify it, I just couldn't send it in this email.
If you can help Debbie, please let us know here. Thanks in anticipation
