Palm Leaves Quilt Pattern: A Bible Block

"Many spread their garments in the way and others cut down branches off the trees and strew them in the way, and they that went before and they that followed, cried, saying Hosanna, Blessed is HE that cometh in the name of the Lord." Mark 11: 8

Words From Charlotte Bull

There may be two designs and three variations of this one, but all bear the related name of Palm or Hosanna. One is even called Palm Leaves Hosanna!

The oldest patterns are shown, with the branches reversing their direction, which is most effective.

This requires real precision. It is exciting if done in scrap greens. Do note that there are many reversed templates in this one.

12" block patterns for templates & paper piecing

Quilting experience is assumed for this New Testament block as there are no specific directions. I suggest you use the templates if you are making a sampler quilt. If you are making a full quilt with this pattern you can use the rotary cutting PDF as a guide but some are not complete.

If you are new to quilting I recommend the Old Testament blocks.
