Book No 34, Star Bedspreads from The American Thread Company. This collection of 13 patterns was released in 1944 and is displayed over 27 pages.
No 3402 - Capitol Hill - A delicate filet crochet to lent that touch of splendor to a formal bedroom.
No 3403 - Pennsylvania Dutch - Now you have found it .. a knitted bedspread with hex design. The design here is not exactly the same, but quite similar to the Pennsylvania Dutch Afghan.
No 3404 - Manhattan - This solid crocheted spread with blocks and vertical stripes is tailored simplicity at its best ... perfect for a modern setting ... perfect for 'his' room.
No 3405 - Hot Springs - A lacy piece with dainty beading - delight your daughter and make this for her own special room.
No 3406 - Louisiana Bayou - The raised Water Lily design brings to mind the flora and fauna of the rich Southland.
No 3407 - 20TH Century Chicago - For a room with a new idea, solid crochet, applique and lacy border.
No 3408 - Peach Tree Street - A spread Scarlet would have chosen for her home with Rhett ... a popcorn pinwheel variation.
No 3409 - Texas Ranch - A knitted spread in herringbone pattern. Make the stripes as narrow or as wide and in as many colors as your room can take.
No 3411 - Ohio Farmhouse - Large filet block design, looks as if the spread were made all in one piece. One of the simplest designs to do.
And that's it ... all 12 patterns. There are a couple classics in here ... such as the Pennsylvania Dutch and the Louisiana Bayou and then, of course, the absolute charmer of Land of Nod. The first time I came across the Pennsylvania Dutch bedspread it was in a magazine with incomplete instructions, so I was quite happy to find it in this booklet.
Okay, now on to the next project ....
