History of the Doily
This is a filet doily that Laura Ingalls Wilder created after she looked at a Mary Card pattern.

The pattern used to be available from Paper Crafts Magazine in June-July 2003.

Coats & Clark bought this pattern from Bendy Carter. Bendy recreated it by looking at the original doily by Laura Ingalls Wilder which is in a museum.
