A Breath of Springtime quilt block

A Breath of Springtime
October 19, 1933-Nancy Cabot had this to say regarding her quilt pattern today, "The middle of October is a good time for a quilter to begin a coverlet that will brighten one of her rooms through the winter. And no quilt pattern could be gayer than this which is quite appropriately called A Breath of Springtime. It can be a riot of fresh flower colors."

Though vases and baskets of flowers are common motifs for applique quilt blocks, I have not been able to find any examples that resemble Nancy Cabot's A Breath of Springtime design.

  1. Such a pretty block. I am not going to make one but I can see it as a nice size block for a medallion center.
