Jonquils quilt block

August 18, 1933-"Two shades of yellow is the proper color scheme for the blossoms themselves, with stems and leaves of green," wrote Nancy Cabot in reference to her quilt pattern today entitled Jonquils.

She was very specific about the coloring of the Jonquils quilt block and it's use.  In addition to the colors specified above, Nancy said if the pattern was to be used for a pillow top, the flower bowl should be cut from a light fabric and a black background should be used. But, when making a quilt, the background should be tan or pale green and the flower bowl a dark brown, black or green.

Since this is an applique block I did not make it for my sampler.
