Prairie Lilies quilt block

Prairie Lilies
August 14, 1933-Prairie Lilies is Nancy Cabot's block for today. She suggested that making the pattern "in the glowing yellows and creamy whites of the lily will add charm and gayety to any interior. The lilies may be springing gracefully from a dark green bowl against a background of beige." Very poetic!

Nancy further suggested using the Prairie Lilies design to make pillow tops. Her pattern could be purchased for "5 cents in stamp or coin" by sending payment to Nancy Cabot at the Chicago Tribune.

Since this is an applique block, I didn't make it for my sampler. My drawing is based on the drawing Nancy had in her column. The center of the lilies appear to have been embroidered. I have not been able to find any more information on this block.
