Rose of Le Moyne quilt block

Rose of Le Moyne
December 29, 1933-Rose of Le Moyne is yet another applique rose design by Nancy Cabot. This one, however,does not look much like a rose to me. It reminds me more of fuchsia.

There are several names for this design-The General's Rose, Rose of New Orleans, The Lucky Rose according to Nancy.

She believed "Quilt historians prefer "Rose of Lemoyne," on account of the date of the pattern and the influence that gallant Frenchman had on the early history of New Orleans. It is made of shades of red, deep rose, and light rose, with deep green for the leaves."

I have not been able to find any patterns or quilts made that go by any of the names.
