Please note: This listing is for a downloadable PDF pattern, not a finished item.

An original appliqué block inspired by the clarsach and traditional Hawaiian quilting patterns. This harp came in two different forms: a gut-strung Pictish version and the wire strung Gaelic clàrsach. The earliest surviving clarsach is from the 15th century C.E., but depictions can be found on Pictish carvings as far back as the 8th century. A lively swirled border surrounds the harps. For a simpler, smaller block, work only the center harp design without the outer border and quilt in echo lines. Adjust fabric sizes accordingly.

The pattern includes full-size eighth-fold templates for 14" and 18" blocks. Print actual size and cut on a folded square of fabric. Cutting and assembly instructions are included, but finishing instructions are not. The finished block may be used as part of a quilt, pillow, wall hanging, or any other project.

Supplies:
Design Fabric: 1 fat quarter (18" square)
Background Fabric: 1 yd (20"x 20" square)
Backing Fabric: 1 yd (20"x 20" square)
Batting: 21"x 21" (approx)

Notions:
Quilting and appliqué needles; thread for quilting and appliqué; basting thread or pins; sharp scissors; thimble; pencil or erasable fabric marker; quilting hoop.

Note on fabrics: Solid, marbled, or batik work best. Busy patterns may obscure the design. 100% cotton is recommended.
