    This book features quilts from the 40's and 50's - designs that have become classics in a relatively short period of time. These wonderful designs are familiar to most everybody - Sunbonnet Sue & Overall Sam, the Dresden Plate, the Alphabet quilt, and don't forget - sock monkeys! These quilts are all shown in today's wonderful country colors and fabrics; cottons, flannels, and wools. This really gives a whole new look to these timeless treasures. The ABC quilt, which was actually around long before the 40's, is made in the wonderfully usable size of 45" x 53". This afghan-size quilt is just the right size for your little ones to wrap up in - maybe even learn a letter or two! There are other projects using the single letters such as pillows with their initials or a little banner spelling out their name to hang on a bedroom wall. The book also has a second alphabet - smaller letters to make little applique projects. Other projects include Sue & Sam shown in the flannel quilt on the cover & also done in wool applique banners. The dresden plate is shown finished as a flower with yo-yo centers & topped off with assorted buttons. The sock monkeys (now you say, "I used to have one of those!") are made in 3 different sizes - the morn, the dad, & the little girl - and sport a happenin' wardrobe done in flannels, prints, & plaids. These & the several other projects in the book take you on a wonderful walk down memory lane, keeping the traditions alive.
