Almond trees are the first trees of the year to bloom in Israel, with flowers appearing even before the leaves. The Hebrew word for almond, “shakeid,” comes from the same root as the word for “wakeful.”

This challah cover features blossoming appliqued almond branches against a clear sky and the Hebrew words “Shabbat Shalom” for a peaceful Shabbat.

Finished Size: 19” x 15” (48cm x 38cm)


The instructions cover machine applique for the branches, blossoms, and letters. If you prefer hand applique, the pattern is easily adapted to that technique. The centers of the blossoms are hand embroidered using the simple backstitch.


This challah cover is made with two fat quarters plus additional fabric for the appliques. Use quilting fabrics, silk, or silk-like fabrics like polyester satin.
