I've indexed pieced patterns and I've indexed applique but I am not going to index chenille bedspread patterns.
This may be due to childhood trauma. We slept under these hand-tufted bedspreads.
1) They were scratchy, part of the trauma
2) They were an attractive nuisance, so to speak, the tufts just begging to be pulled out while one listened to the radio.
3) One got yelled at for pulling out the tuft---more trauma.
A more pleasant childhood memory is
driving by roadside bedspread stores.
These retail establishments were everywhere south of Cincinnati.
There were commercial establishments like motels and trading posts that sold the spreads and also individual vendors. One of my favorite photos can be found in the Georgia Virtual Vault
A small independent shop.
The making and sellings of these hand-tufted bedspreads has been documented in Georgia, the heart of the craft.
Catherine Evans Whitener is credited with the revival of the old candlewicked spread and turning it into a cottage industry.
Highway 75 is recalled as Peacock Alley because of the many
bedspreads in that design in the roadside shops.
There are numerous surviving examples
They made robes too.
There were other patterns
Just crying out for an index.

And click here to see Carma's vintage chenille cakes---edible I believe. (But I am easily fooled when it comes to food.)
