Plus these duplicate copies of syndicated quilt patterns from 1933. These are from Detroit newspapers, before the Fuller family moved back to Oklahoma--The patterns are Josephs Coat of Many Colours, Lafayettes Orange Peel, and New York Beauty. They would look great in a suitable frame but would have to be kept out of the sunlight as they are so old and the newsprint is not very strong.
I also wanted to give away some vintage fabric - here is some Korean silk. My understanding is that it was part of the American redevelopment work after the Korean War, trying to get a textile industry rebuilt and going, especially silk making - these are salesman's samples and I think date from the 1960's. The silk is good to use in patchwork as long as you resist the temptation to pull at any loose threads!
There are some larger pieces as well. I will try to make up several bundles and give an assortment. The designs and colours are very 60's and do look rather Merimeko in an oriental sort of way, if that makes sense.
To enter, just leave a short comment and I'll put them all in a hat, which I will draw in about a week's time. I'll email the winners - I hope that not too many of you have "no reply" addresses! As I say, it is just for fun.....Pippa
