Lily Daisy Book 102 Crocheted Bedspreads Tablecloth and Novelties

Next up in my stack of pattern books is a delightful selection, in a lacy sort-of-way, from Lily Mills.  This pattern book goes back on 1939 and has a nice collection of home decor accessories.   They have a quite vintage feel, as should be for designs that are now 75 years passed

For reasons that I've not yet discovered, this pattern book was released with two different patterns covers.  All other factors are the same.

Lily Mills Daisy Book No 102 - Crocheted Bedspreads, Tablecloth and Novelties

Lacy Bedspread No 620 - An intriguing 10- inch medallion bedspread design with fill-in and a pointed scalloped border.  

Imitation Armenian Lace Bedspread No 621 - Another lovely medallion bedspread with long fingers of fringe.  The instructions include a variation border design for scarves. 

Star Bedspread No 623 in Two Colors  - This motif spread, with flowers in a contrast color, has unusual breaks in the motif design, presumable whether the design meets the table edges.  The motif here could also be easily used to create cloths of other sizes. 

Daffodil Bedspread No 624 - This pretty filet crochet design is worked old style ... without charts.  The size of hook is not designated; you control the size.  

Three Piece Buffet Set No 625 - A small medallion pattern that can be joined to make mats, scarves, etc., in sizes of your choice with a nice chain and treble border. 

Rose and Daisy Design No 626 - Two easy crocheted medallion designs to be joined to form mats or cloths is sizes of your choice.  

Filet Tablecloth No 699 - This lovely cloth, worked to chart will measure 64 x 72 inches.   This pattern was also released as Lily Leaflet 64A.  

Refreshment Doily Set No 628- Features 5 different filet and crochet designs to use as drink mats. 

Rose Pillow Top No 629 - The outer motif of this pretty block forms an attractive diamond motif. 

Chair Set No 630 - Another small medallion design that can be used to create a variety of items.

Handy Pot Holders No 631 and 632 - colorful kitchen accessories in 6 and 8 colors of Crochet Cotton. 

Medallion Designs -- Crochet in desired quantities to form scarves, spreads and cloths.

Crocheted Edgings - Three exquisite edgings worked in Crochet Cotton with a No 12 hook.

And, that is the entire book.   All the patterns are crochet, with three filet selection.  I felt the designs in this particular book were much more intricate that many of the other designs in this time period.  My guess is the styles originate from an earlier time period, however, I have nothing concrete to base that on.   

Okay, I've now finished this book, time to move on.   I think I'll try one of the Smart Knitting Magazines next. 

Thanks for dropping by.
