Workbasket Floral Embroidery Patterns

Because I am still working on the antique quilt tops (bed and doll) and am not quite ready to show photographs, I thought I would post some more vintage embroidery patterns. These pretty floral designs were published in The Workbasket magazine in 1956-57. I think they are so cute with their colored highlights. My envelope contained only 23 designs, so I wonder if I am missing at least one pattern. Here are a few of the flowers — an Acrobat document with all 23 flowers is available here.  Any of these designs are pretty on their own, but they would also make an amazing quilt if used together.
