Ladies Art Company
Quilt Notes: The two versions above of ALL KINDS, were illustrated by Rhoda Ochser Goldberg, in her famous QUILTING AND PATCHWORK DICTIONARY, published 1988, p.88, and listed as a 9-patch pattern. Maggie Malone's 5500 QUILT BLOCK DESIGNS, #1061, pg. 82, has the same ALL KINDS pattern as Goldberg's version, but with a slightly different piecing at the base of the beams.
There's a slightly different version also of ALL KINDS in the Ladies Art Company Catalogue (1898), #377 (as illustrated left): that is, same basic pattern but with the four beams longer and narrower, the center section slightly smaller.
If there is a craft that centers itself around the principle of diversity, it is very surely the art of designing quilt patterns, and thus the title here, ALL KINDS can certainly attest to its endless variety. More patterns at this site which celebrate multiplicity or the joy of diversity include, for example:
