The syndicated Nancy Page quilt column written by Florence La Ganke appeared in the Detroit Free Press. Introduced on Sunday, October 6, 1929 were the patterns for this quilt top. Starting with October 13, a free pattern appeared each Sunday for 25 consecutive weeks. For a self addressed stamped envelope the reader could get a direction leaflet to aid in the making of the Alphabet Quilt.

This is a clipping from the Detroit Free Press, October 6, 1929,
