Clown’s Choice Quilt Block

You are here:

At first glance the Clown's Choice Quilt Block appears to be quite intricate. It is actually just a clever placement of color and basic quilting units - Just squares and Quarter-square Triangles arranged in a simple 9-patch. It's an unusual block that I haven't seen used in many quilt patterns.

A grouping of this rarely seen block generates a visually complicated design that includes elongated "jewel" and "paper lantern" shape.
