Chinese Lanterns quilt block

Chinese Lanterns
November 8, 1933-Nancy Cabot published her Chinese Lanterns pattern today. Though not a floral design, this is yet another applique pattern.

She wrote "its execution presents a rare opportunity to the quilter who likes to make use of many vivid colors, since the lanterns may be as colorful in fabric as they are in paper."

Nancy Cabot had published another pattern using the lantern motif, Japanese Lantern, on June 20, 1933. That pattern was a pieced block.

There is a very bright, colorful lantern quilt here. It's not exactly Nancy Cabot's design but it definitely has some of her motifs. I can't find her pattern or any quilts made using it.
