J.P. Coats Crochet, Cross Stitch and Tatting Book No. 14
Anne Champe Orr (1875-1946) was endlessly fascinated with needle work and designed and sold hundreds of thousands of patterns for cross stitch, quilting, crochet, filet crochet and tatting. She was widely published. J.P. Coats Crochet, Cross Stitch and Tatting Book No. 14, copyright 1923 has Anne Orr designs. It contains 12 edgings (11 are reverse stitch), a reverse stitch Square Medallion in a Leaf Design, and a reverse stitch edging for a cross stitch linen centerpiece.
Anne is thought to have developed the split ring (see http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art173899.asp)and daisy picot techniques. The tatting community is grateful for her many tatting patterns.
