|Pieced Flower Basket|
What a fun tradition that would have been!
Nancy went on to say, "The Pieced Flower Basket is a rarely successful combination of a geometrical and a floral design."
She felt it was a simple quilt to make and that "it's gay effectiveness is gained through the use of bright but harmonious colors."
Even though Nancy Cabot felt every colonial girl made this quilt, I have not been able to find a pattern or quilt that looks like her design. Baskets of flowers are a common quilt theme though so maybe she's referring to the general idea not necessarily her block design.
There is a very similar design available in Electric Quilt's Blockbase program as #691 for those of you that have that program.
I did not make this block because I don't think it's a good choice for a 6" block. The squares would be less than 1".
