Bozena made this quilt from a Detroit News quilt pattern. During
the 1930s and the early 1940s, the Detroit News ran a quilt column
offering free patterns. A thumbnail sketch was printed in the paper
with instructions on how to acquire it. The patterns were available
by mail or could be picked up at the Detroit News office. Rags and
Tatters was published in 1933.
This one page pattern has instructions and sketches on the front
and full size pattern pieces on the back. Click on the page for
