This pillow sham is based on the counterpane that First Lady Grace Coolidge knitted while in the White House.

During her lifetime Grace Coolidge contributed numerous articles, poems and knitting patterns to needlework and popular ladies magazines. This pattern, which she edited rather than wrote, was published in the February 1930 Needlecraft Magazine of Home Arts. Entitled “Great Grandmother’s Counterpane Takes on New Glory,” this pattern is described as a dear old pattern passed down from time immemorial. It is a variation of the four-leaf clover.
