Welcome to the Quilting Board!
There is a website with a tablemat pattern that looks a lot like your picture. It is called wonderwomanquilts.com
It is probably called Dahlia. It is an old pattern. It can be hand drawn if you feel comfortable.
Take graft paper and draw lines in center of square up and across and diagonally. Then draw one side of the petal and fold paper and draw the other. The petals do overlap. You could, of course cut the excess from the back when you finih the applique. I judged a show yesterday that had these as the border. When you draw your square the finished size of the block then leave about 1/4 margin all around the square to get the size of the petal. Remember the secret to drawing a perfect petal is when both sides match. When you get the size you need then add the seam allowance. Can then be needle turned or use a template to fold over the edges or can be blanket stitched.
Could this be what you are looking for? Looks like it is called "Friendship Dahlia"

If you are unable to figure it out. PM me. I could email or post you the pattern.
That flower pattern is beautiful.
Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
Lisa - a big THANK YOU for the Ctrl + - I had no idea you could increase the size of computer images! It will sure make life a lot simpler than trying to increase applique patterns by hand and/or running to Staples!
I have a book that calls this pattern Friendship Dahlia; however the petals are not as fat. I bet she made her own.
Retired teacher, loving it.
Love quilting also.
Yes, it does look like the Dahlia pattern. I had been sitting here trying to remember the name.
