I might send this photo to Rose Marie Werner this weekend when the weather gets colder. I found the quilt years ago and purchased it because I simply like it.
I was very surprised to find that Rose Marie attributed this pattern to Anne Orr. There is no title or date for the quilt but the kit was apparently offered in a leaflet called Anne Orr's Quilts.
Anne Orr is better known for her geometric patterns that look more like cross stitching. You can see some examples here at Pinterest. But as I continued to research, I found some examples of traditional applique:
I love the gentle and charming children on this quilt and hope you enjoy the close-ups of the blocks:
Like Marion Cheever Whiteside Newton's applique patterns, the children's faces are not embroidered. It's a sweet quilt and one of my favorites.
Tomorrow is Friendship Friday and if you would like to share anything, please email me at email@example.com!
Have a safe and happy day!
