Illustrated in "Quilts and Their Story" by Marie D. Webster (p. 67). This prize quilts pattern consists of four large flowers that originate from a green X shape in the center and grow towards each of the four corners. Longer green stems also grow from the center piece towards each side and end in small red dots that border the tips.
