Morning Glory quilt block

Morning Glory
August 26, 1933-The floral theme continues with the introduction of the Morning Glory quilt block today.

Nancy Cabot sold the pattern for this block for "5 cents in stamps or coin" through the Chicago Tribune for which she wrote.

Nancy explained that the "Morning Glory vines when the quilt blocks are joined corner to corner intertwine over the entire quilt."

As far as colors go, she felt "materials matching the natural colors of the flowers would be the logical choice."

Since this is an applique pattern, I did not make it.

Though I can't find any patterns or quilts made using this design, I think a quilt using the Morning Glory block might look like this-

Tomorrow-Louisiana Rose
