Pansy quilt block

Pansy Block
July 15, 1933-Nancy Cabot didn't have much to say about the Pansy block.

"The blossoms are pieced of the characteristic shades of purple, orange, and yellow on leafy stems of green." she wrote.

And she suggested to make a Pansy quilt look "even more like the colorful pansy beds, set the pieced blocks together with strips of green."

You can see a copy of her pattern here.  This is not the complete pattern.  No sizes or yardages are given.

Since this is an applique pattern, I did not make the block.

Here's my version of what a quilt made from the Pansy block might look like-

Tomorrow-Rose of 1840
