Dutch Girl quilt block

Dutch Girl
September 15, 1933-Petite Dutch Girl Enhances Border of Juvenile Quilt was the title of Nancy Cabot's column presenting her pattern for the Dutch Girl quilt.

Nancy wrote, "A parade of such little Dutch babies would make a happy border on a quilt for a child's bed.  Materials and colors will suggest themselves." I find it strange that she is referring to this figure as a baby. It's carrying a flower pot!

I have not been able to find any patterns or quilts using Nancy Cabot's Dutch Girl quilt block.  Since it is an applique block, I did not make it for my sampler quilt.
