Here is what Mrs. Benberry wrote regarding this quilt: "The pattern was obtained from Frank's Art Needlework, the oldest needlework store in St. Louis, dating from the mid-1800s. At its height, Frank's advertised in national magazines, such as McCall's, Good Housekeeping, etc. The store closed in the early 1980."
