King's Crown Quilts

February 15 in my Quilter's Block a Day calendar features a traditional block called King's Crown. While we here in America don't have a king (but a president), it just calls to mind fairy tales and stories of long ago for us. Here is one of my King's Crown quilts from at least 10 years ago:

It's the arrangement of the fabric in the corner squares that creates a secondary pattern. Here you can see the block's line drawing and the use of sashing. Notice the "D" squares are different colors.


Here is the first one I made about 15 years ago using an Asian inspired collection of gorgeous prints. The center square is a wonderful place to fussy cut a lovely motif.


Someday I may make another one. I have given away the 3 I've made. I'm sure someone is enjoying the beautiful fabrics!

  2. You are the Mistress of Color Arrangement! It always surprises me how different the same pattern can look with just a little color thought first.
