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.
