Week 4 - Present Block
Project by Katie at The Fabric Squirrel
The present block is super easy. You will need to know how to make flying geese but that's ok because you have made plenty by now.
You will need two of these blocks. I have done one in blue and one in turquoise in the finished quilt. For the purpose of the instructions, I have referred to the blue one.
Seam Allowance: ¼”
Unfinished size: 8" x 10"
Finished size (when sewn into your quilt): 7½” x 9½”
Width x Height (cut one unless otherwise stated)
4½” x 2½”
2 - 2¼" x 2½”
2 - 2½” Squares
2 - 1½” x 3¾
8" x 1½
4 - 3¾" Squares
1. Make your flying geese with your white 4½” x 2½” and pink squares.
2. Add the white squares to either side of the flying geese.
3. Create your rows by sandwiching the smaller pink strips between blue squares.
4. Now sew your four rows together to finish your present block.
You could easily recreate this in different sizes to make a fun quilt full of presents.
This is block number 4 in my Christmas Block Along. For the previous blocks you can get to them here:
