    interesting indeed. I would just make squares and half square triangles to get the same effect. good luck!

    Looks like this pattern is most commonly known as Sister's Choice.

    Pretty weird that a pattern called Cross and Crown is made with the Sister's Choice block and not the actual Cross and Crown block. They are totally different blocks, not just different names for the same block.

    thank you so much, I had the magazine that this pattern was in but I have misplaced it after my mom died. I just now started sewing again.

    I agree with Texan. You need 8 HST, 8 dark squares, 6 light squares, and 1 light rectangle the size of 3 squares (or just use 3 light squares). Lay it out in a 5 by 5 setting and you're good to go.

    Looks like a very easy one to duplicate as it is simple squares and HST's.

    I wonder how many different Sister's Choice blocks there are? This isn't exactly like the one I made. I've seen others and they are close but not the same. I think it all depends on the middle. Mine is rectangle. I think it was mainly used as a Friendship block because it gave a large area in the middle to sign your name.

    Absolutely - the block is called Sister's Choice, Farmer's Daughter and several other names, but the block pattern can be found on quilterscache. I made a blue and white version 2 years ago when making a family reunion quilt in memory of my Sister who had passed away 2 years before. We also grew up on a farm in SD, so either name was appropriate. It makes a beautiful quilt, like the one you pictured.
