Pattern Details

With its lavish floral appliqué, this hanging makes a beautiful and powerful statement for the Easter season. There are two themes in this design:  Resurrection, and the Trinity.  (This same design, without the floral appliqué, would be perfect for Trinity Sunday, as white is the traditional liturgical color for both Easter and Trinity Sunday.) The theme of Resurrection is expressed by the white lilies, a traditional symbol of Easter. They bloom before the cross, in an orb of golden light.  Using two lighter values of gold in the circle creates the illusion of the cross remaining visible behind the glowing circle.  Life triumphs over death. The Trinity theme is developed throughout the hanging, starting with the three white lilies. Each lily holds three embroidered stamens, and the lilies bloom on a stalk with three sets of three leaves. The Thousand Pyramids design of the background takes the Trinity theme into the very substance of the banner. Triangular patches, cut from assorted white-on-white fabrics, combine to form innumerable expanding triangles. The Easter hanging is finished with a row of prairie points on the bottom edge, and a wrap-around backing with integrated hanging sleeve.  While this hanging uses quilting-style patchwork and appliqué, it is not quilted. Finished size 18 x 32 1/2 inches.

Recommended with this pattern

  • For the Thousand Pyramid blocks, choose an assortment of white-on-white prints, totaling 3/8 yard.
  • For the back (which wraps around to the front at sides and top), 5/8 yard of white-on-white.
  • For the cross, and prairie points, scraps of medium-dark gold tonal prints (total about 1/8 yard). Use at least 3 different prints.
