Coronation Fabrics


Being a fan of the Royals (both baseball team and British monarchs) I am excited to see the coronation of Charles III this week. I do remember watching the coronation of  Elizabeth II quite a while ago.

One might want to make a commemorative quilt. There is a lot of fabric out there on Spoonflower and other sites you can find with a websearch for Coronation Fabric Charles. I thought I'd make a panel suitable for a small medallion. You can print the panel above on an 8-1/2" x 11 sheet of prepared fabric.

The inspiration was a fabric flag printed for the coronation
of George V & Queen Mary in 1911

Edward VIII in 1937

His brother George VI with Queen Elizabeth 1937

George's daughter Elizabeth II, 1953
Many handkerchiefs were sold.

Simple repeat from hankie border showing the Tudor and 
Lancaster Roses, the Scottish Thistle and the Irish Shamrock.

Look for tea towels too.
