Vintage patterns can be so beautiful, and Eleanor Burns has done some digging and found some amazing historical treasures for her new book, Tales of the First Ladies. This block has a rich history all by itself, and to promote her new book, Eleanor is giving away the pattern for free! More from Eleanor:
"Let's celebrate Autumn with this festive block. The pattern was given its name by Mabel Obenchain of Famous Features, a syndicated, mail-order source that began in the 1940's.
"The pattern was also simply called White House by Nancy Cabot in 1937. At the time, Eleanor Roosevelt was in the white house with her husband, Franklin D. Roosevelt."
