King's Crown Pattern

This variation of the King's Crown quilt block finishes at 8-inches square. It's made with four Flying Geese units, four small corner squares and one larger square sewn at the block's center. The Flying Geese can be quick pieced. We'll use a method that completes each one by sewing squares to the ends of a rectangle, but you might prefer to make four at a time with the no waste flying geese method.

The cutting chart below includes patches required for one King's Crown quilt block -- make as many identical blocks as you need or sew a scrappy assortment. You'll find instructions for a small King's Crown quilt on page 3.

King's Crown Cutting Chart

 

Deep blue for block corners: (4) 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" squares

Grass green for Flying Geese: (4) 2-1/2" x 4-1/2" rectangles

Sky blue for Flying Geese: (8) 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" squares

Multicolor print for block center: (1) 4-1/2" x 4-1/2" square

There are other ways to make Flying Geese units. If you choose another method, alter cutting to suit. Geese units should finish at 2" x 4".
