Blue Eagle Coverlet Pattern – NRA Eagle - Nancy Cabot

This Nancy Cabot pattern appeared in the Chicago Tribune on October 8, 1933. To quote the Cabot article, “Inspired by the NRA Emblem seen all over the country and known all over the world, The Tribune today offers an original quilt pattern called the “Blue Eagle.” The color choices were to use a strong blue against a white.
This eagle motif looks a little more like a frog to me than an eagle, but if you have a quilt that looks like this -- you have an NRA Blue eagle quilt.
