With the need to "use it up and make it do" during the Great Depression, quilting exploded in popularity. By the mid-1930s, over 400 newspapers printed block patterns on a regular basis. Author Nancy Mahoney was lucky enough to find scrapbooks filled with clippings of those patterns. She shares her favorites--along with simplified sewing techniques--in this rare collection.

  • Eleven scrappy quilt patterns include "Chinese Checkers," "Patriotic Star," and "Treasure Chest"
  • Designs feature '30s reproduction fabrics that capture the cheerful colors reminiscent of the era
  • Block patterns are updated with quick cutting and piecing techniques--get that old-fashioned look in less time
