Anne Orr Quilt Patterns — Lockport Batting Co.

Lockport Batting Company published several booklets and leaflets of Anne Orr quilt designs. I have two of the booklets and a few leaflets. Following up on the Anne Orr inspired quilt designs that I recently posted, I thought I would show you  the original patterns from this 1944 publication.  It’s amazing to me that Anne designed so many beautiful patterns for tatting, crochet, lace making, knitting, cross stitch and quilts, even though she was not a needleworker.

These old booklets have yellowed with age and have a few stains.  I’ve tried to clean them up, and hope they are still legible enough to use.
