Default Help need a name

I found 8 of these blocks at a garage sale, but would like 9 to make square sit upon quilt. I've looked a few places, but can't find its name or the pattern. My next step is to see if any of you are better at finding things than me, which is a given I'm sure.

Or, you could put an entirely different middle block, hand embroidered flowers if you do hand work, or an applique of flowers cut from a fabric.

I believe it's called the Flower Pot block. Here's a link...edited to add that it's not the flower pot but very similar.
