This was the entirety of Nancy Cabot's Chicago Tribune column on July 18, 1933.
Good idea but here I am showing you this block in December not July! I doubt I'll ever catch up!
Anyway, here's an antique Poinsettia quilt that's close to what Nancy's block looks like. The drawing of her design for her column was a little more free form, like the quilt shown, than my drawing is. Once again, since this is an applique block, I did not make it.
