The Queen's Floor Quilt Pattern

The Queen's Floor pattern is now available on Craftsy!
Queens Floor Finished
The pattern is written in two sizes: 36" square (shown above) and 56" x 68" throw, though could easily be adapted to a larger size. It is a quick and easy quilt, and great for a beginner. The throw version can be made from 2 layer cakes. I include instructions for using layer cakes or yardage, or you can do what I did, and use scraps!

The inspiration for this quilt came from Doctor Who Season 5 Episode, The Beast Below

My hubby humored me and sketched up a little sample in Google Sketch up, and I made a trial.

And then I spent some time on Google and discovered that the design is actually the Ozark Maple Leaf (which I would have known if I had continued with my Farmer's Wife blocks, lol). 

I really like how changing the fabrics around a bit brings out the arrow design. I'm waiting to hear about some fabric, but I hope to have a throw size sample done soon. =) If you get one done before me I'd love pictures!
