Cross and Crown

I went searching and found out this block is a very old block based on the Bible.  When women/men first started quilting they made their blocks up from things in their every day lives.  You can also find a few variations of this block when you start a search for it.
I’m going to give you this link instead of re-writing a few little bits and bobs of information.

This cross and crown block pattern is from EQ7 and I liked the looks of it right away.  It wouldn’t matter what fabrics you chose they will look lovelyIMG_7351
The directions for constructing the block are here:
