All the examples in my files seem to come from this Carlie Sexton pattern.
Sexton ran a pattern business in the teens into the 1930s.
Here's her original vintage version.
It's #17.34 in my Encyclopedia of Applique
Here's one from Susan Price Miller's collection.
She's the expert on Carlie Sexton.

Blocks plus border
UPDATE: Jerrianne in Texas emailed a photo of a quilt the Lakeview Quilters are selling at their annual auction on August 20th. Jerrianne's sister bought the top at a guild auction in Corsicana, Texas a while ago and donated the top to the guild for last year's auction.
The borders were a mess. They guess the maker tried to design her own border but she couldn't get it to fit so she never sewed it on. Jerrianne worked on the border, moving pieces and making some new ones. Jean stitched the borders and Cindy Gravely did a fabulous job of quilting it.
"The edge of the background fabric has “Honor-Pure Finish” stamped in red. Via a web search, we found the fabric is J C Penney Co in 1925. Sold for 15¢ per yard."
And you can buy this recently restructured Rose of Sharon. The Lakeview Quilters auction is August 20, 2018. Check it out here:
The block's got got everything.
