Bucilla Hand Crocheted Bedspreads, Book 136

This is a short and sweet little pattern book - Book 136, Old Favorites, Bucilla Hand Crocheted Bedspreads.    The pattern book was issued in 1940 by Bernhard Ullman.   By short I mean the book contains just 6 patterns.   But, it must be said that all 6 are quite interesting, perhaps even dazzling for a crocheted bedspread.
Water Lily Block Motif Bedspread Pattern
No 553 - Water Lily Bedspread made of 13 1/2 inch hexagon motifs that have a central water lily; surrounded by rows of tall popcorns and finished with extra long fringe.

No 554 - Pastel Bedspread has blocks measuring 6 inches between points with lovely pastel shades in the center).  The pointed ends are finished in long fringe.

No 552 - Popcorn Square is made up from 14 1/2 inch blocks to size of your choice.  When joined, the square form an 8 point star motif.

No 550 Diamond Popcorn Bedspread features 9 1/4 inch hexagon blocks with a strong diamond flair in popcorn stitches.

No 414 Swedish Popcorn  - The individual block motifs form an attractive Swedish flower design when joined.

And, that all 5 of the designs.   The design motif here is quite clear, with all but the Pastel Bedspread being worked in popcorn stitch.  I'd think that two of these spreads, the Pastel Bedspread and the Swedish Popcorn might be equally wonderful as an afghan.  

I've listed these patterns individually in my shop (links below the picture) should you be interested in stitching one for yourself.   Either way, hope you enjoyed the photo journal, and thanks for dropping by.
