Round Robin-Nancy Cabot Pattern- Irish RosecreatortimePeriod
Beginning in the 1960s, quilters participated in Round Robin pattern swapping. Subscribers to magazines like 4'J's, Little-n-Big, JayBees, and Aunt Kate's Quilting Bee, became pattern collectors. Ads were placed in the magazines asking for pen pals to research, trace and mail specific pattern collections, like Alice Brooks or Farm Journal. Through these exchanges, important friendships were formed and the seeds of quilt scholarship were born.
This is a quilt pattern in one piece.
