I created this quilt using one block and the On-Point layout. The block is an altered version of the Crown of Thorns. I played with color to create added interest in the blocks so they did not all look the same. I wanted the feeling of the first light of the day shining thought the darkness of night. I got this idea while watching The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug movie. I thought it was so cool when they were trying to find the secret passage way into Erebor. I designed this quilt to have characteristics which are found in Thorin’s Key to Erebor. The finished quilt is now hanging in the entry way of our home, greeting all who enter. The finished size of the quilt is 42″ x 42″.
