Laura Wheeler: Basket Of Daisies

The vintage-era patterns that were published under the trade name Laura Wheeler include patchwork and applique quilt patterns, crochet, embroidery, doll patterns, and other forms of needlework. Some of the patterns contained black and white diagrams with the instructions. Some patterns, like this one for a bedspread, contained inked transfers to iron the design onto fabric.

Bedspread Basket of Daisies 

This Basket of Daisies bedspread motif is a Laura Wheeler transfer (Pattern No. 1334). The design was created for embroidery work and when made for a bedspread, the basket motif would be worked in the center of the bedspread.
