Tulip Garden quilt block

Tulip Garden
November 25, 1933-Nancy Cabot introduced her Tulip Garden quilt pattern as being suitable for "modern boudoirs."

To describe this block, Nancy wrote "A quilt in this design makes a veritable garden of colorful, nodding tulips when completed."

As far as colors go, Nancy stated that the Tulip Garden quilt could be made in two colors or "along the lines of the original, which utilized a different shade or two in each block."

She went on to say,"A quilt in this design is surprisingly effective with modern furnishings."

There is an antique quilt here that is very similar to Nancy's pattern.
