Colonial Quilts

Waldvogel Ephemera Collection; Waldvogel Archival Collection
Des Moines, Iowa, United States
The booklet titled Colonial Quilts was produced by Home Art Studios in Des Moines, Iowa. The company owner Hubert Ver Mehren and his wife designed the patterns and the catalog. It appeared in 1932 when it was distributed through newspapers and department stores, whose names and addresses would be printed on the bottom of the front cover. This one was distributed through the Cincinnati Inquirer.

The booklet opens with an historical overview of quilt history by "Nancy Lee" who was not a real person. The booklet included both traditional and modern designs including the large center medallion star quilts designed by Ver Mehren in shades of pink, blue, orchid and yellow. He offered them as ready-cut quilt kits at different prices ($3.50 to $5.95 for the top) based on the fabric chosen (cleona, gingham, and sateen). A color chart, cutting guide, perforated quilting pattern sheets and stamping powder sold for $1.00. This booklet came out just prior to the 1933 Sears Quilt Contest and several Ver Mehren large medallion quilts were finished in time. Two reached the final round of 30 winning quilts.
The quilt patterns appearing daily in The
Enquirer are the most beautiful designs from a
collection numbering well over 100,000.
Famous old patterns that have been popu-
lar for years will be shown new creations by
well known design artists will be featured. In
the event a design or pattern of especial inter-
est to you is not shown you can obtain it by
writing The Needle Art Feature Department
of The Enquirer.
Because the Modern Housewife has shown
her interest in quilt making, The Enquirer has
obtained as a daily feature the most famous col-
lection of patterns available. You'll find them
of invaluable aid in helping you create the ex-
quisite beauty of that which in time will be
considered an heirloom.

A Heritage
of the Past

I love the new revival
Of this old, simple art,
So feminineóappealing
To every woman's heart:
The bits of bright cloth glowing,
A scissors' glinting gleam,
The cut squares and diamonds,
A deftly needled seamó
A woman's face above them,
Her cheeks and eyes aglow,
This daughter of the mothers
Who pieced quilts long ago,
To make their bedrooms lovely,
And gay and sweet and bright:
More cheerful in the daytime,
More colorful at night.
She sews the bits together,
And, intricate or plain,
Beneath her flying fingers
Grows basket, star or chain.
All breathlessly she places
The bright blocks in a line,
And watches them completing
Some beautiful design.
And views the finished pattern,
A thing of light and grace,
To make her home a sweeter
And more attractive place.

HE women of the colonial days are re-
sponsible for the great advancement
in the Art of Quilt Making. Each new de-
sign was greeted with a chorus of enthu-
siastic approval, and gifted hands fell
busily to work completing it.
To them a new pattern was the most
exciting discovery of the month; a com-
pleted quilt the proudest achievement of
a year. The gay happenings and bits of
gossip were recounted at the Quilting
Bees, and to the pioneer woman at the
outpost of civilization it gave solace dur-
ing those strenuous days, and warm corn-
fort against the winter's blast at night.
The designs assembled on the pages of
this book are heritages of the past. And
just as they contributed to the feminine
contentment in by-gone generations, to-
day's modern women are finding even
greater pleasure in recreating these lovely
designs with their own hands.
More quilts are being made today than
ever before. The patterns assembled in
this book have been selected for their
popularity. Each pattern is accurate, con-
tains a cutting guide for each piece and
has seams allowed, suggested color schemes
and other information, assuring you an
authentic Early American Quilt with
which to make your bedroom lovely, too.

old traditions and the spell of early America

The New Multrapat Transfer Method
of Stamping Your Own Needlework
has met with the instant approval of needlework
lovers. Its simple, easy method transfers any of
the beautiful quilt designs shown on these pages,
to your own materials. The new Multrapat proc-

terns will stamp your own needlework and those
of your friends and neighbors at a surprising low
cost, for each Multrapat design will stamp from
four to ten pieces of needlework.
Be the first woman in your neighbor-
hood to try the new multrapat method
of stamping art goods.
Multrapat transfer patterns are 10c

The Pendulum Swings Back a Hundred Years. Again
the Quilt Dominates the Bedroom
Decorations and modern decorators whether fur-
nishing bedrooms with old or new pieces choose
patchwork quilts not merely as bed coverings but as
keynotes for bedroom decoration.
The following materials are recommended to you
as the most suitable for making your quilts:
Muslin of firm weave, free from dressing or filling,
old-fashioned oiled calico, for the small allover print
effects that reproduces the true early American effects so much desired.
Sateens, either domestic or French qualities, are suggested as they offer you a rich
lustrous material that can be had in four contrasting shades.
Fine ginghams and percales for setting quilts together, in vat-dyed colors, can be
had in any of the pastel shades. Vat-dyed prints in an endless variety of colors and
combinations can be used most effectively when combined with solid colors. Some
quilt makers prefer to use 81 or 90-inch muslin for the back as it has no seams.
Waxed finished or special quilting threads are coming into popularity, as they do
not kink, and they work through the cotton easier.
Cut materials accurately, fold in seams evenly, and when sewing materials to-
gether, have one edge on the straight of the material joined to a bias edge. Avoid
sewing two bias seams together.
