I created the drawing at the left using the proportions that Nancy Cabot showed in her Chicago Tribune column 80 years ago.
This block seems to be another that was probably not popular. I can only find one reference to it (shown below) and the proportions are different than Nancy Cabot showed. You can see more about it here.

This is also another block that I don't think would make a very good 6" block so I did not make it for my sampler. The antique block shown is a 15" block!
