Cross Stitch Charted Flower Designs
Today’s freebie pattern is a full page colored charts for cross stitch. First there are flower edgings, flowers in baskets, flowers in a vase all very pretty. Then there is a good sized spray of pansies or morning glories, I can’t tell, it’s below, what do you think?
Clark’s Designs Booklet
Since this page came from a 1922 Clark’s O.N.T. Designs Booklet No. 15, there wasn’t any Coats yet. The Spool Cotton Company published the booklet with cross stitch and crochet designs. Not to mention the cost was only 10 cents at the time.
For More History on Anne Orr
If you’d like to learn a bit more about Anne Orr, there is a short History of Anne Champe Orr on The Shuttle Smith Tatting blog. Additionally, with this history is a listing of her publications in numerical order. Some are left blank, but it’s a start if you’d like to collect them all.
This book titled The Quilters Hall of Fame: 42 Masters Who Have Shaped Our Art has several pages devoted to Anne Orr’s contribution to the Needlework Arts.
In addition to the information about her life, there are several photographs and cited resource books. It would be fun to look into the books for more research and patterns.
Overall the book is well worth owning, just to put a face to the name of some of the historical figures in the quilting world.
