Windblown Daisy quilt block

Windblown Daisy
April 18, 1933- Nancy Cabot describes the Windblown Daisy quilt block as being "one of the modern quilt designs."   She said to "borrow the beauty of the natural daisies for your design by proper selection and matching of colors and careful stitching of the pieces" in making this applique block. I think it looks modern even for today!

 This is another block that must not have been very popular as I can't find any antique quilts made using this block.

Since it is an applique block, I did not make it but the pattern can be downloaded here.

I wonder how Nancy suggested setting the blocks. Here are a couple of my ideas-
