Bells in Bloom quilt block

Bells in Bloom
November 28, 1933-Bells in Bloom is another quilt block this month that is both pieced and appliqued. Decorated Baskets was the first.

Nancy had this to say about her Bells in Bloom quilt pattern, "Fashioning a quilt in this design, with its suggestion of summer and all the lovely things that season brings, should be a delightful occupation for winter afternoons and evenings."

The colors that she suggested are "the soft blue of the Canterbury bells, or two shades of delicate lavender."  Or "try experimenting with rose or yellow shades" she added.

You can see a two page pattern attributed to Nancy Cabot here. I have not been able to find any quilts made using this pattern.
