Conversion Project: Caesar’s Crown PDF Pattern Now Available!

I LOVE THIS PATTERN. That is all. I did my mockup with Catnap, obviously because one must.


Mom made the tester for me, and she used a bit of Indian Summer and Les Amis. They turned out to go really well together!


The original Caesar’s Crown pattern is technically curved around the star in the center, but then, curved paper piecing is kind of counter productive, so I made it angular. It’s not 100% true to tradition, but hey, where would we be if things never changed, or dare I say, improved?

Fabric requirements:

  • 1/4 yd each of 2 darker fabrics for the star shape
  • 1/2 yd of lighter background fabric

¬†Finishes at 24″ square, as all my conversion project patterns do.¬†

    Looooooove. This is awesome. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this block before.

    I’m in love with this…but new to paper piecing. I would like to make this, but a bit smaller. To do that would I print it smaller?

      Katelyn, Absolutely, if you print it at 50% scale you’ll make a 12″ block, and if you print it at 75% you’ll make an 18″ block. Just remember when resizing that the seam allowances are no longer accurate and you’ll need to trim 1/4″ seam based on the SOLID lines, rather than just cutting on the dashed lines.
