Holiday Topiary Quilt Block - 7" x 10"


This listing is for one .pdf (electronic) pattern.

Get ready for the holidays and whip up a few of these cute, potted topiary trees.

This is an original quilt block designed by Barbara Cain. It measures 7'' x 10'' when finished. It can be either paper pieced or traditionally pieced.

If you plan to piece traditionally, cut out each pattern piece. Cut out each corresponding fabric piece, adding a 1/4" seam allowance to each side. Sew the fabric pieces together in numerical order to create alpha sections, i.e., start with piece A1, then attach A2, A3, etc. to form a complete A section. Do the same with the B pieces, C pieces, etc. When each section is complete, sew A onto B onto C and so on.

If you are a paper piecer, you know what to do!

If you are new to paper piecing and want to give it a try, you can download a free paper piecing tutorial and practice pattern from my blog. Just paste this path into your browser and you'll arrive at the blog post and Dropbox link for downloading:


This pattern would make a great mug rug, hot pad or quilt border. Enlarge the pattern to make a table topper, wall hanging or a gift bag for a friend!

Just a few scraps of your favorite quilting fabric and some batting is all that is needed to make this cute little block.

As soon as your payment is received, you will receive an email with a link to download the file directly to your computer. You'll still need to fill in your name and snail mail address on the purchase form however.

You have three attempts to download the pattern so be sure that you save it to your computer.

If you have any trouble with downloading, reducing or enlarging or with sewing, please let me know and I'll be happy to help as much as I can.

Please note that this pattern is for individual use and is not to be used for making items to sell.

Thank you and enjoy!
