Lavender Puzzle quilt block

Lavender Puzzle
August 30, 1933-Today's Lavender Puzzle quilt pattern came into existence over a hundred years ago when "somebody's great-grandmother grew weary of all the old quilt patterns that had been used so often and by so many people," according to Nancy Cabot. I wonder how she knows this!

She goes on to explain that the Lavender Puzzle quilt pattern was created using "the old childhood pastime of folding squares of paper many times and cutting through the folds to make "snowflakes." I often wonder where Nancy Cabot found the history of some of these blocks!

I haven't been able to find any quilts or patterns using this design.

I assume you would make this block using the Hawaiian applique technique.
