Hibiscus quilt block

September 18 1933-The Hibiscus quilt block was a new design when Nancy Cabot published her pattern in the Chicago Tribune.

She suggested making each block from a different fabric using "all the natural colors of the big showy hibiscus blossoms."

I found a copy of Nancy's Hibiscus quilt pattern here. However, I do not believe it to be from today's column.

I think she must publish her Hibiscus pattern again because the write up on the pattern is not today's column as it usually is.

Yet another applique block that I did not make!

I have not been able to find any quilts using this pattern.

  1. This is a pretty applique design. How many Nancy Page designs are you presenting? I enjoy seeing them.
