  • From 1931 to 1940, the Omaha-World Herald encouraged readers to make quilts from patterns published in the paper and then enter them to be exhibited and judged at local department stores. Quilts came by the hundreds, and viewers came by the thousands. It was the Great Depression, and valuable prizes, such as furniture, refrigerators, bicycle and linens, enticed people of all ages to enter this prestigious contest. Ten timeless designs selected from patterns published in the paper have been redrafted for today's quilter. Whether you enjoy patchwork, foundation piecing or applique, you can craft your very own prized quilt.
