Elizabeth Hartman Quilt Patterns
These pretty, prickly thistles are made with simple diagonal seams and are perfect for using small pieces of your favorite colorful fabrics.
This pattern includes instructions for making a 24� pillow cover, and large and small lap quilts using a 6� x 18� pieced thistle block.
The thistle blocks are made using conventional piecing methods. No paper piecing or templates are used. You will just need your favorite fabric marking tool. A complete list of the pieces needed for a single block is also included, so its easy to use scraps and/or make blocks to use in other projects.
