Children of Israel quilt block

Children of Israel
December 31, 1933-Children of Israel is the name of the quilt pattern published by Nancy Cabot in her Chicago Tribune column today.

This quilt design was originally called Chosen Children and dates back to early colonial New England according to Nancy.

"Pieced in old blue and white or combined with gay prints, it is quaintly charming. Either way, the quilt possesses great character and individuality," she wrote.

I did not make this block for my sampler quilt as it isn't really practical to make a 6" block using this design.

Though I can not find any patterns or quilts using Nancy Cabot's Children of Israel pattern, I did find a similar quilt here.

Children of Israel can be found in Electric Quilt's program as #2425.

This is the last block published by Nancy Cabot in 1933 and the last one for this blog, at least for awhile. Now, to make the sampler quilt!
