Crown of Thorns Quilt Pattern: A Bible Block

"...and the soldier plated a crown of thorns and put it on his head and they put him in a purple robe." John 19:1-5

Crown of Thorns block

Words From Charlotte Bull

This block pattern is very simple and very effective. Traditionally it is done with just two contrasting solid colors, but some versions use a medium print for the triangles that represent the thorns.

Also known as the Wedding Ring or Georgetown Circle, this block has been done in a striking Amish block as well as pastel pink and white.

12" block patterns for templates & rotary cutting

Quilting experience is assumed for this New Testament block as there are no specific directions. I suggest you use the templates if you are making a sampler quilt. If you are making a full quilt with this pattern you can use the rotary cutting PDF as a guide but some are not complete.

If you are new to quilting I recommend the Old Testament blocks.
