I found the center block in the “Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns” by Barbara Brackman. It is block #1164, called “Arrow Crown”. I added the ribbon border first, then decided it needed to be bigger and added the other borders. The quilt was completed in November of 2014 for a guild challenge. Each member drew a crayon from a paper bag and had to make something quilted using only that color plus white, grey or black.  I drew tangerine.

I quilted it on my domestic table top Juki using a low loft cotton batting. I used all white thread in the bobbin but switched the color of the top thread to match each block.
