Dutch Tulip Basket quilt block

Dutch Tulip Basket
December 19, 1933-Dutch Tulip Basket is the quilt pattern of the day in Nancy Cabot's column in the Chicago Tribune.

"If the quilter can find a blue in that delicately bright shade called "delft" or "old Dutch'' she will have found the perfect color for the tulip basket used in this design. The tulips can be in the bright shades of the natural flower. The effect is typical of Holland designs." This was the entirety of Nancy's column introducing her Dutch Tulip Basket quilt pattern.

This is another of her applique patterns that I have not been to find any examples of.
