Vintage Anne Orr Style Quilt Patterns

Although Anne Orr certainly designed other styles of quilts, these charted type designs always remind me of her.  These are patterns from a 1969-70 McCall’s Needlework & Crafts magazine and no designer is credited.  I have a feeling I’ve seen these reprinted somewhere else, but maybe it was just a similar pattern.

I’ve never attempted one of these quilts, but they are very appealing.  The patterns are simple squares and triangles which can be easily drafted on graph paper. Actually, you could adapt any simple cross-stitch design using this technique. I think any of these patterns would make an especially cute quilt for a child.
