Yellow Clover Vintage Quilt Block: Instructions
Vintage Pattern Directions..no longer available  

(Images removed or site inactive)


**Yellow Clover a block design first published by Nancy Cabot for the Chicago Tribune.

According to Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns, Yellow Clover is one of hundreds of Cabot patterns sold by mail order during the 1930s.


YELLOW CLOVER debuted in the Nancy Cabot quilt column in the Chicago Tribune on March 19, 1936. Cabot's notes state the following: 

"Yellow, green and white form one of the most popular of present day quilt color combinations. YELLOW CLOVER is one of the newer pieced blocks which allow the quilt maker to use these colors in a most appropriate pattern. 


It is a pattern which is not difficult to piece, and only 36 blocks are required for an entire coverlet. They are set together six blocks across and 6 blocks deep and surrounded by a five inch border of white material and bound with leaf green bias binding a half inch in width." 

The pattern is included in most compendiums, see p.207-5 in Jinny Beyer's QUILTER'S ALBUM OF PATCHWORK PATTERNS, for example, or p.212 in Maggie Malone's 5,500 QUILT BLOCK DESIGNS, or #2459 if you're using Barbara Brackman's ENCYCLOPEDIA OF PIECED QUILT PATTERNS.
