Windblown Tulip quilt block

Windblown Tulip
March 16, 1933-Windblown Tulip is the name of the block Nancy Cabot published today in her Chicago Tribune column on this day in 1933.  She didn't have much to say about this block.  She said the block "calls for brilliant colors." This is a complicated applique block that is not suitable for my six inch blocks.

This pattern can be found on Electric Quilt's Classic Applique 1920's and 1930's cd.  It is not exactly as Nancy had hers drawn but it is similar.  She had much longer stems on the center tulips and the leaves were longer and skinnier but overall the effect is the same.
