Pennsylvania Dutch Rose quilt block

Pennsylvania Dutch Rose
August 7, 1933-In 1820, the Pennsylvania Dutch Rose quilt block was born and was usually pieced from pink and red fabrics according to Nancy Cabot when writing in her Chicago Tribune column on this date.

She did however suggest, "Other interesting and harmonizing color combinations should not be overlooked...such as varying shades of blue on a yellow-tan background, or combinations of rose on delicate green."

There are examples of two antique quilts made with blocks similar to Nancy Cabot's Pennsylvania Dutch Rose block here and here.  The second quilt has a very interesting setting.
