Rock River Cotton Co. Patterns - Hummingbird

December 1934
Waldvogel Archival Collection
Janesville, Wisconsin, United States
Rock River Cotton Co. (Janesville, WI) manufactured cotton quilt batting with a length of tissue paper quilt patterns rolled inside. The patterns are credited to Mary A. McElwain whose quilt shop in Walworth, WI was close by. Each pattern cost 35 cents in McElwain's shop, but they were free when one bought a roll of batting. Notice the 1934 patent pending notice on each Rock River Co. pattern sheet. In the 1940s, Lockport Batting Co. in Lockport, NY acquired the pattern line.
