You have certainly accomplished a great deal in the way of quilt-making Mrs. T., and would like to know which you consider your favorite pattern. I AM writing for my grandmother who is making a Double Wedding Ring quilt. She has the blocks all completed and isn’t sure of how to put them together. Reading through your column some time ago she has noticed that a Mrs. B. A. J. and a Mrs. R. L. C. have both made Double Wedding Ring quilts. Is there any way she can get in touch with these women? (MISS) L. J. L. I have kept Miss L’s grandmother’s address and if anyone will be kind enough to help this dear…(clipping continued on next page)
