Christmas Orchard Quilt Pattern

The Christmas Orchard quilt is made with two traditional quilt blocks, Practical Orchard alternated with Snowball. A poinsettia Christmas fabric is used at the center of the Snowballs, which are surrounded by gold. Gold continues vertically in Practical Orchard, with squares separated by a quarter-square triangle unit. Green replaces gold in the vertically positioned squares.

Use the pattern for a baby or toddler quilt, switching fabrics to suit a theme.

Quilt blocks: 6" square finished size

Quilt size: about 45" x 57"


Poinsettia fabric for Snowball centers: 3/4 yard

Gold for squares, quarter-square triangles and narrow border: 7/8 yard

Neutral for squares: 1/2 yard

Red for quarter-square triangles and inner border: 1 yard

Green for squares and outer border: 1-1/4 yard
