#8: 1930's Quilt Block-"The Dutch Rose"

This Dutch Rose pattern was published in 1933 by the Lansing State Journal and the text of of this article read:

"Here's an old favorite, the Dutch Rose, or it is sometimes called the Dutch Windmill. In the early days it was known as "Hearts and Gizzards." It has been a fascinating pattern and lends itself to rather vivid colorings. The size is 18 inches. It can be made up in white and your favorite solid color or a combination of prints and solid colors combined with white. This quaint quilt has maintained its popularity throughout generations of needleworkers and you will find it just as popular today as it was in the days of our Colonial forefathers."Are you familiar with this pattern? Have you heard it called any of these names: the Dutch Rose, the Dutch Windmill, or Hearts and Gizzards?
