The First Clue....

My first clue as to where these patterns came from was on the back of the patterns. Most of them have a comic strip on the back that is copyrighted 1929. So at least I have an idea of the time frame.
Some of the patterns have stock reports on them and society news.

Stay tuned for Clue 2!


  1. many quilts of that era were published in newspapers and the papers were subsequently cut up and used as patterns. How nice that you are able to date your find from the newspapers!

  2. What luck that there is a date on the back. Good dective work.
