The Priscilla bedspread book, 1914

Throws with flower and lace designs like these would not be warm, they would be an awful lot of work to make, but they are so so pretty! I also like the idea of making a throw with pieces of fabric and crocheted borders, like the one below:

They are adorable, but the work involved! A true labour of love.
