I have an old pattern in crochet with raised rose-type flowers, though it 
is not the one you are describing.  The blocks aren't 18 inches square, and 
the example isn't white.  If the flower shape is what you want, you could 
easily make bigger blocks around them, by just continuing to crochet around 
the outside.

Historic.  Ouch.  Don't know how old the booklet is.  When did pattern 
books sell for 29 cents...

If you would like to see it, just send me your address off line.  I would 
like the pamphlet back.  You could copy it and pop it in an envelope back 
to me.
