King David's Crown - a Variation
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The original block called King David's Crown looked a little boring to me, so I rearranged some of the colours and came up with this variation. It just made a little more interest in the centre of the block -- at least to me anyway.
King David's Crown - Variation is considered to be a five patch block, since it is designed on a 5 x 5 grid. However, rarely do I sew a block together in five rows of five as is the norm for a five patch. I choose to construct it in "chunks" rather, in the manner of an uneven nine patch. The end result is the same, but I find this an easier method, construction-wise.
The block features lots of half square triangles and a few quarter square triangles -- (just to test your skills).
