Violets quilt block

October 9, 1933-"Have you a lavender and green bedroom in your home?" That was the question Nancy Cabot asked her readers when she published her Violets quilt pattern.

She continued by saying, "If you have here is a design for the quilt that will be its finishing touch."
She suggested using the "lovely blue purples of the real violet" to make the flowers with green for the stems and leaves.

Nancy felt this pattern was "exquisitely feminine, a perfect coverlet for the room of a young girl."

I have not been able to find any patterns or quilts made using this Violets applique pattern so I don't know how Nancy intended to lay out the quilt.
