No 7385 - Dance of the Flowers - graces both the front and back cover. This delightful large floral medallion with smaller fill-in work is worked in two colors.
No 7391 - Sorcery - Another medallions design (5 1/4 inches) with smaller fill-in motifs. The finished cloth measures 53 x 73 inches.
No 7363 - Richelieu - This (first) filet crochet selection carries a bold mosaic motif in the extra long size of 65 x 93 inches.
No 7444 - Peacock Tails - This four piece luncheon set was a quite popular design during the 1940's, appearing in five (that I know of) different Spool Cotton pattern books.
No 7414 - Snowfall - A delicate luncheon set with place mats and runners made up of small 2 1/8 motifs in a snowflake design.
No 7386 - Princess Charming - Dainty floral and leaf motif in octagon motifs. The finished cloth is the standard 60 x 80 inches.
No 7387 Forest Flowers - A larger motif at 5 inches, with fill-in, that resembles an opening flower bloom.
No 7416 - Family Affair - This Dogwood trimmed beauty, worked in Filet Crochet, measures 70 inches in diameter.
No 7185A - Spring Song - This exquisite lace mat is perfectly sized for trays. The pattern includes the 'A", which means there is a corresponding piece out there. I've not yet found it, but rest assured, I'll be on the watch.
This pattern is offered as a free download in the shop.
No 7389 - Summer Sun - Another round medallion cloth; quite different but equally as lovely as the others.
No 7388 - A Square-A-Day - This third filet crochet selection is made of large 17 inch square blocks in a somewhat geometric flower motif.
No 7415 - True Love - Small Posy Flower motifs (a lot of them!) create this marvelous cloth - also 60 x 80 inches.
No 7408 - Rosy Posy - Our last filet crochet selection gives us a delightful luncheon set in rounded shape.
No 7328 - Brighter Star - The 5 1/2 inch round star motifs, with openwork joinings create a lovely cloth that is 65 x 90 inches. A smaller version of this would almost make a lovely runner.
No 7392 - Gingerbread House - A tri-color mat set that has great potential; not only in browns but the colors of your dining room.
No 7390 - Flower Girl - This cloth is created in 4-1/2 inch medallions that are a 6-petal flower with small fill-in. A grand design for your dining table.
No 7413 - Frolic - This sweet motif cloth starts with a linen center surrounded by a wide and whimsical squirrel and floral border. Termed a tea cloth, is measures 44 inches square.
And, there we go. True to the title - Tips on Tables - all seventeen cloths or mats pattern are geared to the dining table. I like that they put in five filet crocheted motifs; certainly more than the average vintage pattern book.
It took me almost a week to get through this one, but it's now listed in the shop for vintage historical value. Time to move on to the next set ... perhaps a magazine this time.
