McCall’s Monday — Child’s Picture Patch Quilt, #1633

Posted on September 12, 2016October 21, 2016 by Martha

The illustrator eliminated some of…

Posted on June 13, 2016September 26, 2016 by Martha

I’m sorry about the quality of these images, but the original illustrations inmy 1936 McCall’sDesigns for Needlework catalogue are only 1″.
