Honeymoon Cottage Quilt

THE HONEYMOON COTTAGE
PATCHWORK has nothing to do with cross-patches, but as Mrs. Wiggs used to say, it is "keepin' the peace and doin'away with scraps." You'll love to do something pieced for the treasure chest, maybe several quilts that will be cherished for a generation or maybe just a precious "patchedy" pillow to start with.

The Honeymoon Cottage has a quaint old-fashioned charm that will appeal to all lovers of a squat, broad-eved, little home with wide, hospitable doorway and fireplace. It is delightfully made in two color combinations using a harmonizing print for the lawn. The materials used are white muslin, the colored materials are a fine grade of fade proof gingham. The print is of very good quality also. A block is simple to piece and when finished, measures about 12 by 15 inches. Twenty of the blocks set together with four-inch strips and six-inch border, make a quilt about 84 by 90 inches.

One block makes a clever pillow or stool top. A stool can be made at home by smoothly padding a board or shallow box and using wooden door stops, brass hooks, or large knobs, for legs. The edge finish for such a stool is a headed ruffle of green or any other color used in the pieced top.

No. 232 Material for Quilt, $2.95. No. 230 Cutting Pattern and instructions for Honeymoon Cottage, at 20 cents. No. 231 Material for Pillow Top and Back, 45 cents. No. 233 Material for Stool Top, at 45 cents.
