Free Quilt Pattern: Gram's Lady Quilt

The other day I wrote about my Grandmother Werner's Lady Quilt, a quilt which she designed based on a favorite apron of hers back in the 1920s. In the 1970s I re-drew the pattern for her and it was printed in Olde Time Needlework Pattern and Design magazine. Gram made the quilt over and over --- I wonder how many of them are out there. The one shown here is mine and was probably made around 1980.

So, because I want her quilt design to live on, I made a PDF file from the 1983 magazine article which you can download and use. It is only three pages long but will need to be printed on over-sized paper (it is 10.5" x 11" so should be printed on 11" x 17" paper). Most copy shops can do this for you. Please enjoy it and if anyone makes I'd love to see your photos.

Thanks for reading.


  1. thank you for the pdf file! I'm so in love with this pattern. Blessings!
