Coxcomb quilt block

December 14, 1933-Coxcomb Quilt Is Seldom Seen Outside Museum was the title of Nancy Cabot's column introducing her Coxcomb quilt pattern.

The Coxcomb design is one of the earliest colonial patterns according to Nancy. "It is usually made in colonial prints on a cream background, as was the original."

I haven't been able to find any patterns for this Coxcomb applique design or any quilts made from it.

All I can add is that I assume the block was set on point in a quilt.
