Sunny Sam quilt block

Sunny Sam quilt block
February 26, 1933-"Little Boys Slip Happily Off to Sleep under 'Sunny Sam' Quilt" was the title of Nancy Cabot's Chicago Tribune column eighty years ago today.  She didn't mention any history behind the block but noted that "variation is obtained in this quilt by letting Sammy wear overalls.of a different color in each block."  She thought it was a great pattern for a boy's quilt and I agree.

I decided not to make this block because I don't really want to use it in my sampler quilt.

Tomorrow- Swastika
