Yankee Charm quilt block

Yankee Charm
July 29, 1933-"Wonder whether some rather arrogant northeners gave this quilt pattern its name back in revolutionary days?  wrote Nancy Cabot about the Yankee Charm quilt pattern in her Chicago Tribune column.

She went on to write, "At any rate, it is a charming design and makes a strikingly effective quilt if pieced with bright but harmonious colors."

The Yankee Charm quilt block is a very easy block to make but not practical at the 6" size that I am making for my sampler quilt.

The Yankee Charm block can be found in Electric Quilt's Blockbase program as #2115.

I have not been able to find any quilts or patterns that look like Nancy's block which makes for a very short post today!
