Illustrated in "Old Patchwork Quilts" by Ruth E. Finley (pl 64). The pattern consists of a large pink flower in the center. The middle of the flower is yellow with a smaller pink flower in the center. Four green stems branch off from the center toward each corner and end in a small pink flower with a yellow center. Larger green leaves branch off from the stems.
