She wrote, "Flaunting the blue and gold ribbons of a prize winner, today's quilt pattern created something of a sensation in a recent quilt contest-one of the largest ever held." I believe she is referring to the Sears Quilt Contest at the 1933 World's Fair which can be seen here. Be sure to read the history of the quilt below its' picture.
Nancy wrote, "The block is best executed in two shades of rose. The border is effective in green but many quilters prefer it also in rose." The quilt shown above has a rose border.
Nancy also noted that the quilt could be seen in many color schemes in the south where it was extremely popular.
