Globe-Gazette's Quilt Pattern BOSTON CORNERS Some things are made in every state in the union but always retain their original descriptions. Not so with quilt designs. "Boston Corners" may be known as such in the New England states, but in the middle west it loses its eastern identity and becomes "pavement Blocks." In western quilt lore it is known as "Diamond Cut Diamond." American manufacturers have made it possible to fasion this block in an unusual color combination of soft red and fuschia. It is an outstanding example of an old design plus modern coloring. This pattern is from Quilt Book No. 19 which contains six other patterns. For your copy send 10 cents in stamps or com to Quilt Department, Mason City Globe-Gazette, 200 Fifth avenue, New York, N. Y. Be sure to ask for book No. 19.
