For the modern quilting of the day, Nancy explained that the quilt design "is more often seen in the softer rose shades." I have not been able to find any patterns for or quilts made using the Oriental Rose block.
I decided to paper piece my 6" quilt block mostly because of all the odd shapes and angles. You can download a copy of my pattern here.
The paper pieces are kind of strange because of the way the block is designed. The photo below shows what each paper pieced section looks like when sewn. Notice that the triangle in the lower left corner is not paper pieced but cut from a template. The stem shape is also cut from a template. The stem is appliqued to the triangle before adding it to the block.
I sewed the parts together like this-
and then sewed the center together like this before adding the sides.
