Good Luck Block quilt block

Good Luck Block
September 14, 1933-The Good Luck Block quilt block was the first Canadian design to be published in Nancy  Cabot's column.

Superstition surrounding the Good Luck Block said that "good fortune would follow any one who sleeps under a quilt of this design" she wrote.

Nancy suggested piecing it "in soft rose or yellow on white, with the four leaf clover in green."

I have not been able to find any patterns or quilts made using Nancy Cabot's Good Luck Block.

The pattern is available in Electric Quilt's Blockbase program as #1006 however.

You can download my pattern here. I made my shamrock as one piece and used fusible to applique it to the background square. The shamrock can also be made from four hearts included in the pattern if you prefer to hand applique the shamrock. The nine patch blocks are made from 1 1/2" squares. The white background squares are cut at 3 1/2". The pieces look like this-
