#10: 1930's Quilt Block-"Oriental Splendor"

Published in 1933 by the Lansing State Journal, here is the text of the article along with the Oriental Splendor quilt block pattern:

"The Stars of the Heavens, and the Pyramids of the Desert, are combined in making this attractive quilt. Many color combinations are practical. Two shades of any of the following colors: rose, blue, green, pink, orchid, peach or yellow, or any one of the colors combined with a white or unbleached muslin, gives you a lovely quilt. The blocks are hexagon shaped and measure 15 inches."Are you familiar with this quilt block?
