I've been remiss keeping up the blog this year. Too much going on here! Currently, I'm writing the story of a local quiltmaker, two more guild lectures, and getting my collection cataloged.
The inventory part is the most fun because my Aunt/Sister Kathy comes over to help with the cataloging. Technically Kathy is my aunt but we grew up together and she is more of a big sister to me since she is only 4 years older than me. Anyway, we make each other laugh while we record, photograph and measure.
This is the "Cuddle Pup Coverlet" which I will be taking out on my program about children's quilts and coverlets. Listed below is the actual ad from McCall's magazine in the Fall/Winter 1952-53 Catalog. The wagon has a pocket that you could put a toy in. There were apparently two patterns, one for crib and one for carriage. I think this one is the crib cover:
So keep well and I'll be back a bit more hopefully! Hugs!
