This stunning block is not only easy to make, it’s wonderful in many color themes. Plus, at 24″ square it’s quite large and can be finished off into a table topper or mini quilt.
Or do as Jenny from Missouri Star Quilt Co. has done and combine several blocks for an eye-catching quilt. She started with colorful 5″ charm squares and mixed them with white. Then she added a gray contrast and finished the quilt off with a beautiful border.
Batiks are stunning in this block and quilt. Or go with whatever fabric styles you prefer. We can easily imagine this made up in many different color combinations as well as seasonal colors.
Jenny shows how the block is made in the following video.

To make the quilt you’ll need:
3 Packages 5″ Print Squares
3 Packages 5″ White Squares
2 yds. Contrasting Fabric
¾ yd. Inner Border
1¾ yds. Outer Border
¾ yd. Binding
8 yds. Backing
The “Crown” block is 24″ square and the quilt using 9 blocks is 88″ x 88″. Four blocks would make a wonderful baby or lap quilt.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources.
