Poppy Garden quilt block

Poppy Garden
December 30, 1933-Nancy Cabot's Poppy Garden quilt pattern was published today. It is the last floral applique pattern this year.

As far as colors for this quilt go, she suggested making the flowers in "all the lovely shades of the yellow poppy, in the delicate shades of the pink poppy or in the gorgeous deep reds of the Chinese poppy, with which we are most familiar."

Nancy recommended the flowers be "set together with strips of soft green, differing from the deep green used in the leaves."

She went on to say, "It is easily appliqued and is a quilt that increases in charm with time."

This Poppy Garden  block is very similar to the Rose Garden block from November 11, 1933.

Two copies of Poppy Garden patterns attributed to Nancy Cabot can be seen here. The second pattern is more like the version she published today.
