The evolution of craft patterns in The Farmer's Wife magazine is quite interesting. The 1920s saw almost exclusively crochet patterns until the very late 1920s. In the 1930s, many of you will not be surprised to know that quilting became much more popular, and the magazine published at least four separate quilt pattern booklets during that time. What did surprise me though, was the quilting patterns that were published in the 1910s. The first set of pictures below are of patterns published in 1913, all in black and white. At the bottom of this post are patterns printed in color in 1934. Sometime in the future, I will post some pages from the 1930s Farmer's Wife quilt booklets.
