Cherries quilt block

September 27, 1933-Cherries is the name of Nancy Cabot's quilt pattern today. She felt this applique design "answers the insistent demand for directions for piecing a red quilt."

She wrote that the Cherries quilt design is from Kentucky and felt it was not seen much outside of Kentucky.

She suggested using brown fabric for the stems, deep green for the leaves and of course red for the cherries.

Though there are antique quilts that have a cherry motif, I have not been able to find a pattern of quilt using Nancy Cabot's Cherries design.
