President's Wreath quilt block

President's Wreath
September 7, 1933-Wreathed Quilt Made Debut in Cleveland's Term is the title of Nancy Cabot's Chicago Tribune column today. She is referring to the President's Wreath quilt block pattern and President Grover Cleveland.

She said this pattern originated during the time Grover Cleveland was president "so most quilt historians claim the honor for him, even though the name "President's Wreath" fails to make any such designation."

Nancy goes on to say the flowers are "usually pieced of a rose and pink combination of materials and arranged at intervals on a green wreath." Since this is an applique block, I did not make it.

I have not been able to find any quilts or patterns for the President's Wreath quilt block made like Nancy Cabot's. So, here's a couple of examples of what it could look like-
