The Colonial Belle designs were available as a kit during the 1930s. The kit was manufactured by Rainbow Block Company and could be ordered through several women’s magazines such as Household Magazine. The magazine advertisement states—
Colonial Belle Quilt Blocks
Of course you must have a set of these beautiful Colonial Belle Quilt blocks. We wanted to offer our readers a quilt for their guest room and wanted something extra nice so we selected this lovely Colonial design. The illustrations show the Colonial Belle in six different poses with bonnets and dresses in various colors all trimmed with old time dainty lace.
The designs are stamped on color-fast patches and ready to be cut and appliqued upon 18 inch blocks. These too, are stamped with the Colonial Belle design, which makes the appliqueing easy. With a bit of outline and the frilling of dainty lace on the bonnet, sleeves and bouquets, the blocks are ready for joining and quilting.
Includes patterns for the six 18" quilt blocks and instructions for a 12 block 72" x 93" quilt. Color photos for fabric selection and embroidery are included for each block.
Please select digital download or printed pattern.
