Indiana Rose quilt block

Indiana Rose
July 10, 1933-"A patriotic daughter of Indiana designed and pieced the "Indiana Rose" quilt pattern,"  wrote Nancy Cabot of her pattern of the day.

She noted that printed fabrics were used in the original Indiana Rose quilts and continued to be used in the 1930's. "It is doubtful if the pattern would be recognized if made up in plain colors," she felt.

This is one of few patterns that I have not been able to find any information on.  Maybe it is known by another name or was never popular?

Since it is an applique block, I didn't make it.
