Renewed interest in needlecraft projects — particularly in crocheted items used as accent pieces — has created a new demand for attractive floral patterns. Fashionable during the first half of the twentieth century, these popular designs ranged from the simple, stylized motifs found in edgings and tablecloths to superb bouquets of three-dimensional blossoms used in bedspreads, placemats, and doilies.
With the patterns in this splendid collection, crocheters can again re-create many of the same eye-catching designs that were once presented in now-rare thread-company instruction booklets of the 1940s and '50s. Included here are designs for a delicate three-piece filet crochet vanity set displaying the timeless beauty of the daffodil; exquisite edgings depicting violets, fuchsias, and begonias; a lovely bedspread titled Friendship Garden; a Rose O' Summer doily centerpiece; a breathtaking doily set titled Forget-Me-Not Swirl; a variety of colorful pansy motifs incorporated in a bedspread, refreshment set, and two different doilies; a lacy lily-of-the-valley doily; and two dozen other irresistible designs.
Easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions and 36 finely detailed photographs enable crocheters at all levels to create a treasure chest of stunning, heirloom-quality items. In addition, a brief introduction provides helpful hints on how to care for completed projects through proper washing and blocking.
