Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

The Tree of Life, done in cotton fabric with wool embellishments, is the tenth block of our "Forever Bound" LDS Museum Quilt. There are four Tree of Life blocks in the quilt, each with a different theme. This is based on the traditional Tree of Life block, with updated and simpler construction techniques. Featured in these blocks are the fruit from Lehi's dream, the all-seeing eye of God, the Lamb and the Dove, and the Alpha and Omega symbols.

This quilt was featured as "His Works- My Blessings" in the 2012 LDS International Art Competition and the March 2013 issue of The Ensign. The block finishes to about 15? and is one of 9 applique blocks, 4 tree of life blocks, pieced setting triangles, and borders that make up the entire quilt. It can also be used as a pillow top, if corner triangles are added. The full pattern is being released on a block-of-the-month basis, so you can create your own museum piece.
