PROSPERITY was also called MISS JACKSON in the 1922 Ladies Art Company catalogue (#479), though pieced differently as a one patch, according to Jinny Beyer's QUILTER'S ALBUM OF PATCHWORK PATTERNS, p. 244-2. An understandably very popular design, it appeared in the Nancy Cabot Chicago Daily Tribune quilt column on June 7, 1933. Cabot (Loretta Leitner Rising) comments: |
"The PROSPERITY BLOCK, if there is any power in suggestion, should be a valuable addition to your quilt collection.
If pieced in bright, cheerful colors and prints this design has a gayety which even the most pessimistic will appreciate."
Among many positive powers of suggestion in the patterns at this site, compare with:
