Roses and Peonies quilt block

Roses and Peonies
August 31, 1933-The title of Nancy Cabot's Chicago Tribune column for today was, Fence Guards Riotous Posies on This Quilt. Ha! Roses and Peonies is the name of the quilt block she is talking about.

Nancy believed the pattern to be from Tennessee.  She wrote, "Roses and Peonies," two of the principal favorites of the flower garden, are here combined in one quilt block. And all kept within bounds by a picturesque fence."

I have not been able to find any examples of patterns or quilts made using this block.
