|Queen Charlotte's Crown|
"In the migration of this pattern to Kentucky the name was changed to "Indian Meadow" and in Kentucky was "almost as popular as in it's home city" explained Nancy Cabot in her Chicago Tribune column.
A tutorial for making the Indian Meadow block can be found here. It's for a 15" block but there is a good explanation of how the pieces get sewn together. You can download my paper piecing pattern here.
This is how I made the Queen Charlotte's Crown block:
These are the pieces of my paper pieced pattern-
The parts get sewn together like this-
Before adding the half square triangle blocks, mark the seam allowances like this-
Sew to your mark like this-
to make two halves like this-
You could also start at one end and sew to the seam allowance and then pivot the fabric around to line up your center and then pivot again at the end of the center section to line up the last edge.
Here's another way to make the block which is easier in some ways but made differently than Nancy Cabot presented it. The tutorial is for a 10" block.
Here's a quilt that is linked to the tutorial also. I love it!
