SUMMARY- I was torn on whether to type out the entire list of 530 quilt blocks in the Table of Contents and decided that way lay madness. So if you are researching quilt blocks and really need to know if a particular block is shown in this booklet, email me, and I will grumble but look it up. This booklet doesn't give you the pattern pieces already measured out and ready to go - you'll have to divine the measurements from the postage stamp-sized sample they have in marching rows of half the book. The book is printed on the cheap quick-to-brown newsprint Tower Press/House of White Birches was so very fond of. The patterns are reprints from the Tower Press publication "Olde Time Needlework"
There is a hodgepodge of patterns in this booklet, many quite lovely. None of the tatting patterns are complicated, and are mostly fairly small edgings. Designers' names are in parentheses in the Table of Contents whenever the name was given with the pattern.
