Welcome! Thistle + Lilly is a newly created pattern brand, currently targeted to designing clothing patterns for babies and children for the Victorian era. While many initial patterns will be for the 1850s and 1860s, the long-term goal is to have patterns ranging from 1830-1900.


Paintbox Blanket

Finished my first crochet project!  After fiddling around with some colored squares, I ended up bordering them all in white and creating a "paintbox" blanket inspired by this one on London Mummy. I loved the simplicity of it and it really lent itself to a baby blanket for my dear friend Sarah Jane's new baby, Anne.  I hope you enjoy the photos.  I was truly a joy to make.

I used Martha Stewart's Extra Soft Wool Blend yarn.
