Round Robin-Mrs. Danner Pattern- Springtime Blossom
Round Robin Pattern, Mary Schafer Quilt and Ephemera Collection, Michigan State University Museum, Acc# 1998:53w.

Description: 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. An 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of paper with a quilt pattern copied from an earlier, published source. Handwritten text, hand drawn, hand colored thumbnail and hand drawn, full-size pattern pieces.

Quilt Pattern No.254-Handy Andy, Ladies Art Company, St. Louis, MO, 1895. Cuesta Benberry Collection, Michigan State University Museum, Acc# 2009:9.1.254.

Description: A quilt pattern published by the Ladies Art Company. The Ladies Art Company placed small ads in ladies magazines and farm papers for their catalog. From the catalog, the pattern was ordered and mailed to the customer. The LAC was the first business to offer hundreds of quilt patterns in a mail order catalog. Up until the 1950s the patterns consisted of a 3” pattern card featuring a color suggestion for the quilt block, and an envelope containing full size, tan tissue paper templates (without seam allowance or any markings) of each shape needed to complete the block. (The earliest versions of the 3" pattern cards were hand painted with water colors by the owner's children.) In the 1950s, the company changed hands and they started producing mimeographed sheets that included fabric yardage, labeled templates with seam allowances and line drawings of a portion of a completed quilt or the full completed quilt and also revised and reprinted the 1928 catalog. The earliest appearance of this pattern would have been the 1895 catalog. This is a quilt pattern in two pieces. A. An 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of paper with a black and white illustration of a full quilt. Color suggestions and cutting instructions with a diagram of the quilt block are included. B. Stapled to the first sheet is an 8 1/2" x 14" page with a block diagram and full size pattern pieces (including 1/4" seam allowances). No small 3 1/2" X 3 1/2" square of cardstock with a drawing of the quilt block colored in. Block size: 13x13'
