Sweetheart Garden quilt block

Sweetheart Garden
September 16, 1933-Nancy Cabot published her pattern for the Sweetheart Garden quilt on this day. The history behind this popular quilt design has "become obscured" wrote Nancy because so many states claim it.

Regarding color placement, she said "The flower buds are made of rose and green and the corner triangles of French blue."

I can not find any patterns or quilts using Nancy Cabot's Sweetheart Garden quilt block so I am not sure if this block is pieced and appliqued or just applique but I decided not to make it either way.

Tomorrow-The Original
