Decorated Basket quilt block

Decorated Basket
November 22, 1933-The Decorated Basket quilt block is both pieced and appliqued. Nancy Cabot introduced this pattern as being attractive to "amateur quilters."

She wrote, "Here is a design so simple to piece that even the amateur can approach it without fear of bungling; at the same time it is as attractive as many patterns much more complicated."

This is another of Nancy Cabot's patterns that I can not find any record of.

The basket part of the block is still a popular design today.

Here are some links to quilts using the basket design without any decoration-
