August 16, 2018  – 10 am – 2 pm – Gift Boxes’ Quilt

Gift Box” Quilt Block (Robbie Altman)

Use Christmas fabric or any fabric that would make great wrapping paper! This is a great quilt for scrap busting or using charm squares. The Christmas quilt was made with scrap Christmas fabric and the Minion quilt was made with a package of charm squares.

The pictured quilts are made up of 30 blocks. This block would be great for making placemats or table runners for birthdays or Christmas.

 

For EACH block you will need:

  • 1 charm square or any 5” square of ‘wrapping paper’ fabric (this will be cut in half making 2 – 2½” x 5” strips – if using scraps you will need 2 – 2½” x 5” strips for each block)
  • Ribbon’ fabric

Cut 1 – 1¼” x 5”

Cut 2 – 1¾” x 1¾”

  • Background (white in pictured quilt)

Cut 2 – 1¾” x 1¾”

Cut 1 – 1¾” x 2¾”

For the whole quilt you will need 30 charm squares with ribbon and background pieces.

Sashing and background are the same fabric. For the sashing for the whole quilt you will need to:

  • Cut 25 – 2½” x 5¼”
  • Cut 24 – 2½” x 6¼”

For the cornerstones you need to:

  • Cut 20 – 2½” x 2½” squares

Cornerstones in the pictured quilts match the ‘ribbons,’ but they can be any fabric you want to use.

Total background fabric yardage is 1½ yards.

This project is a variation of the Flurry Quilt by Kate Spain.
