Rose of Sharon quilt block

Rose of Sharon
December 17, 1933-The Rose of Sharon quilt pattern was published by Nancy Cabot today.

She described this quilt as being "one of the seven bridal quilts the young girls of early New England took great pains to include in their trousseaux."

"The center flower is made in three shades of rose, the  buds in a deep rose shade and the leaves in the shade of green found adorning the natural flower," she wrote.

Though the Rose of Sharon is still a popular applique pattern design, I have not been able to find any quilts made using Nancy Cabot's design.
