    The pattern appears to be a version of 54-40 or Fight. It's drafted on a Nine Patch base: The corners are four patches, the center a square, and the other four patches are squares divided into two rectangles and each rectangle divided into two long triangles. Clear as mud?

    looking at the quilt it is easy to reverse engineer the pattern. basically you are right it is 4 patch blocks in the corners, a center square and the other blocks are 2 rectangles sewn together with long triangles sewn to the bottom corners of these rectangle units. the sashing has crown royal cornerstone blocks. the finished block size looks to be about 9". once you draw up templates for the triangle cuts and the rectangles, the rest should be pretty easy to cut. the 4 patch blocks can be made using strip piecing.

    Crown Royal is a very expensive whiskey or bourbon.

    Beautiful quilt! Very inspiring! I've been saving and collecting Crown Royal bags for quite a while. I hope to get it done one of these days. Thanks for sharing the photos.

    Being a "Crown" drinker and a quilter (not at the same time :-), I would love to make one of these quilts!! I have a bunch of bags tucked somewhere (in my stash). Wonder what pattern this is, or is this one she came up with. I think it's fantastic. I'm usually a traditional quilter at heart, but this would look great in our Rec. room!!

    Yes, I need a copy of the sign also for DD who always "overthinks" her work. Great Crown Royal quilt. The pattern is so interesting. Also interested in the pattern.

    The little sign beside the quilt sounds like the amish reasoning to quilting. Only god is perfect. Personally I think the quilt is perfect also. Great job, thanks for posting.
