Rose Garden BOM - block 6

I have been able to get quite a bit of sewing done over the holidays, including the block for January's BOM Rose Garden.  This one is also a block with several names, and I saw it in a number of locations, including a link to the Spencer Museum. 

I was reading Barbara Brackman's book Encyclodedia of Applique, and she talks about names for blocks, and why there are various names for the same block, and various designs for the one name.  Mostly, in a nutshell, the designs were not named by the makers.  It is only in the 20th century when people starting have access to written designs were they given names. 

Hope you enjoy making this little block.  It is now available to download on the Legend and Lace website.
