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.
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.CROWN OF THORNS ROTARY CUTTING PDF
