Brown-Eyed Susans quilt block

Brown-eyed Susans
October 4, 1933-The Brown-eyed Susans quilt pattern was published by Nancy Cabot in her Chicago Tribune column today.

She didn't have much to say about this block.

Regarding the colors of the Brown-eyed Susans quilt block Nancy wrote, "The best effect is achieved with the use of a creamy white for the background, a deep but bright green for the leaves, a golden yellow for the flowers and a dark brown for their center."

A copy of Nancy's Brown-eyed Susans pattern can be seen here. Since this is an applique block, I am not making it for my sampler quilt.

I have not been able to find any blocks or quilts made using this pattern but a quilt made using Nancy's Brown-eyed Susans pattern might look like this though-
