Sixteen Blue Ribbon Quilts

Of all my old quilt booklets, this one may be my favorite.   It includes some classic applique patterns like Pennsylvania Rose, English Rose, and Aunt Alice’s Blue Wreath, as well as a very nice pattern for the quilt that won the Sears “Century of Progress” Quilt Contest at the 1933 World’s Fair, referred to in this booklet as the “Quilt of the Century.”  This publication contains more instructions than are normally found in these vintage quilt books, and I think it’s especially nice that they added quilting designs for each pattern, including the elaborate trapunto leaf designs in the prize winning quilt.
