Illustrated in "Quilts and Their Story" by Marie D. Webster (p.77). A fairly complex pattern which originates in a center red sunken square with four green and red bud-shapes protruding from each corner. The buds end in three red tear drops. Four pine tree shapes grow from the center towards the four sides and end in red leafy shapes.
