This is a photo of a blanket someone is selling in their shop, there may not be a specific pattern for it.  She may have just married a flower motif square (which may be something she made up) with the 'gingham stitch' pattern (just alternating 2 colors in a row).

Here's a free potholder pattern with the gingham design http://www.yarnspirations.com/lily-sugarn-cream-rose-pot-holder-and-dishcloth-dish-cloth-and-pot-holder/SCC0512-006287V.html?

This is not the same block, but was one that didn't have 1 big flower in the center (and I thought the way the flowers were made was ingenious--in a continuous ring)  https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/busy-lizzie-block

Here is a listing of a bunch of 'flower block' patterns, maybe something here will catch your fancy  https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/search#query=flower &pa=granny-square&view=captioned_thumbs&craft=crochet&sort=best&page=1&availability=free  If you are not a member of Ravelry, it may come up without specific search parameters - you can choose 'free' at the menu on the left, and search terms at the top.  I first crochet at the left, then in the search box typed 'square' and it came up with an attribute=square which I chose, then typed in 'flower' (edit - or try 'garden').  Note, this site is a source reference -- not all patterns on this site are downloadable  or even easily findable, they may be in out-of-print books or no longer existing internet sites.

There is a pattern for it, I just can't seem to find it again.  It was in a crochet magazine a few years back, but I can't remember the name of it.

Some of the squares that had 1 central flower in the Ravelry link look like they could have been close to the base of the squares used in this blanket if the flower was green.  I'm fairly certain the 3 flowers in your pattern would have been made separately and sewn on.

This pattern in green has the same number of flower petals that could be leaves if done in green, and white around (maybe fewer outer rounds):  https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/julias-flower---6-square    Or this one https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/garden-flower-6-inch-square

The flower in your pic is something like: adjustable ring, then *SC, DC, SC into the ring a total of 5 times.  Later, sewn or embroidered them on with a french knot in the middle of the flower.

Really, I'd plan it around the square I chose, then work out the stitches needed for the gingham rows - the most you could be 'off' is 2 stitches (because the gingham repeat is only 3), so you might have to have 1  or both sides end in a a 4 stitch square or switch colors for only 1 stitch at 1 edge, or have 1 edge have a 2 stitch square.

I think you are right, it was in a magazine or a book from Leisure Arts.  My first thought was Crochet with Heart, but I just can't see it in my head.  Will keep looking.  didn't see it on Ravelry, although the problem with them is that if you don't know the name or spell it wrong you are out of luck.
