What inspired this pattern:
Illustrator Dorothy Muriel Wheeler, 1891-1966, was born in Great Britain in 1891. She studied at the Blackheath School of Art, where her principal mediums were watercolor and ink. She designed children's book illustrations, postcards and comic strips. A series of her works were used by Bamforth & Co Ltd, a publisher of fine postcards, for their Woodland Secrets and Fairy Series collections of cards, published around 1920. Her illustrations appeared in Enid Blyton's widely published children's books. They also appeared in books by Anne MacDonald. She published her own version of the Three Little Pigs in 1955. Her final work appeared in 1965, illustrations for Enid Blyton's The Ring O'Bells Mystery.
