and Mrs. F. A. Warner of South Saginaw, Michigan

Have you ever wondered what or who may have inspired the Brockstedt family to collect and sell quilt patterns?

This site will introduce you to a Michigan woman who appears to have unwittingly inspired the LAC collection in 1889.

Also included are images from several early publications that inspired approximately 60% of the LAC collection.

The engravings on the following pages were scanned from original LAC catalogs
beginning with the Second edition copyright 1897.

Images of my collection of 274 LAC colored pattern cards are displayed on most pages.
Many of these were hand colored by the Brockstedt children.
Some were neatly executed and difficult to distinguish from the printed cards while others are just plain messy.

Another collection of these cards was amassed by Cuesta Benberry of St. Louis, Missouri, now illustrated in the Quilt Index.
