Scrappy Crown Quilt Along

It’s finally time to announce my first quilt along in 2015.  I’ll be hosting the #scrappycrownalong on my blog!  We’ll be making ‘Crown of Thorns’ blocks in 15”, 10” and/or 5” finished block sizes.  Each week for 12 weeks I’ll show you how to combine these blocks into a fun 30” block.
From the 30” blocks you have so many options!
  • mini quilts
  • all 12 blocks can go together into a king size quilt
  • make a six of them and add some borders and or sashing for a nice lap quilt
  • make 9 blocks and add borders for a decent sized bed quilt

You can either use tutorials you find online to make the Crown of Thorns block OR you can purchase my Crown of Thorns tutorial on craftsy for just $2.50.  My tutorial gives you the cutting instructions for all three sizes of blocks we’ll be using and I eliminated some of the piecing you’ll find in most of the patterns you find online.
