As illustrated left, HARMONY SQUARE debuted in Nancy Cabot's column in the Chicago Tribune on May 7, 1937. Cabot's notes on the block include the following: |
"There are some quilts which arrest attention immediately and others which must be studied in order to appreciate their beauty. HARMONY SQUARE is in the first class. It is a striking pieced pattern which is used as an allover design. The 10 inch blocks are set together to form a most beautiful and harmonious arrangement."
The simplicity and boxiness of the design is analogous to a variety of other patterns. Compare at this site, for instance, with:
