Ephemera Object Description

Colonial Quilts
  • Ver Mehren, Hubert
The booklet titled Colonial Quilts was produced by Home Art Studios in Des Moines, Iowa. The company owner Hubert Ver Mehren and his wife designed the patterns and the catalog. It appeared in 1932 when it was distributed through newspapers and department stores, whose names and addresses would be printed on the bottom of the front cover. This one was distributed through the Cincinnati Inquirer. The booklet opens with an historical overview of quilt history by "Nancy Lee" who was not a real person. The booklet included both traditional and modern designs including the large center medallion star quilts designed by Ver Mehren in shades of pink, blue, orchid and yellow. He offered them as ready-cut quilt kits at different prices ($3.50 to $5.95 for the top) based on the fabric chosen (cleona, gingham, and sateen). A color chart, cutting guide, perforated quilting pattern sheets and stamping powder sold for $1.00. This booklet came out just prior to the 1933 Sears Quilt Contest and several Ver Mehren large medallion quilts were finished in time. Two reached the final round of 30 winning quilts.

Paulina St. CHICAGO, ILL. A Heritage of the Past I love the new revival Of this old, simple art, So feminineóappealing To every woman's heart: The bits of bright cloth glowing, A scissors' glinting gleam, The cut squares and diamonds, A deftly needled seamó A woman's face above them, Her cheeks and eyes aglow, This daughter of the mothers Who pieced quilts long ago, To make their bedrooms lovely, And gay and sweet and bright: More cheerful in the daytime, More colorful at night. She sews the bits together, And, intricate or plain, Beneath her flying fingers Grows basket, star or chain. All breathlessly she places The bright blocks in a line, And watches them completing Some beautiful design. And views the finished pattern, A thing of light and grace, To make her home a sweeter And more attractive place. -GRACE NOLL CROWELL. HE women of the colonial days are re- sponsible for the great advancement in the Art of Quilt Making. Each new de- sign was greeted with a chorus of enthu- siastic approval, and gifted hands fell busily to work completing it. To them a new pattern was the most exciting discovery of the month; a com- pleted quilt the proudest achievement of a year. The gay happenings and bits of gossip were recounted at the Quilting Bees, and to the pioneer woman at the outpost of civilization it gave solace dur- ing those strenuous days, and warm corn- fort against the winter's blast at night. The designs assembled on the pages of this book are heritages of the past. And just as they contributed to the feminine contentment in by-gone generations, to- day's modern women are finding even greater pleasure in recreating these lovely designs with their own hands. More quilts are being made today than ever before. The patterns assembled in this book have been selected for their popularity. Each pattern is accurate, con- tains a cutting guide for each piece and has seams allowed, suggested color schemes and other information, assuring you an authentic Early American Quilt with which to make your bedroom lovely, too.

Again the Quilt Dominates the Bedroom Decorations and modern decorators whether fur- nishing bedrooms with old or new pieces choose patchwork quilts not merely as bed coverings but as keynotes for bedroom decoration. The following materials are recommended to you as the most suitable for making your quilts: Muslin of firm weave, free from dressing or filling, old-fashioned oiled calico, for the small allover print effects that reproduces the true early American effects so much desired. Sateens, either domestic or French qualities, are suggested as they offer you a rich lustrous material that can be had in four contrasting shades. Fine ginghams and percales for setting quilts together, in vat-dyed colors, can be had in any of the pastel shades. Vat-dyed prints in an endless variety of colors and combinations can be used most effectively when combined with solid colors. Some quilt makers prefer to use 81 or 90-inch muslin for the back as it has no seams. Waxed finished or special quilting threads are coming into popularity, as they do not kink, and they work through the cotton easier. Cut materials accurately, fold in seams evenly, and when sewing materials to- gether, have one edge on the straight of the material joined to a bias edge. Avoid sewing two bias seams together.
