Countdown to Christmas: Christmas Present

Hi! This is Kristina Brinkerhoff from Center Street Quilts and I’m happy to be back with you today sharing my Christmas Present block for the Countdown to Christmas sew-along!

I used fat quarters from Moda’s upcoming lines Mama’s Cottage (red and white striped) and Home Sweet Home (green print) plus some white background fabric for my Christmas Present quilt block, but scraps of your favorite red and green prints would work just as well!

This block finishes at 6″ x 6″.

 

Red, white, and green fat quarters or scraps.

Below you’ll find a quilt block diagram labeled with all of the pieces you’ll need, cutting instructions, and a step-by-step photo tutorial showing how to assemble the Christmas Present block.

All of the pieces are shown laid out in the photo below. The bow on top will be sewn first, followed by the present, then the outer border will finish off the block.

I couldn’t resist snapping a photo of the Christmas Present block along with the Peppermint Twist block I made from December 1st:

Thanks for following along with my Christmas Present quilt block! You can also head on over to my blog (Center Street Quilts), where I’ve posted the instructions for the Christmas Present quilt block in a 12″ x 12″ size. The assembly instructions will be the same as the photo tutorial here, but I wanted to share the 12″ x 12″ cutting instructions for anyone that would prefer a larger size Christmas Present quilt block.

I have loved seeing all of your cute Countdown to Christmas blocks you’ve been sharing! If you make a Christmas Present quilt block and share a photo on social media, please share with me! (@centerstreetquilts on instagram or I’m on facebook HERE now, too!) I’d love to see your version! Thanks and happy sewing!

    It’s cute. Thank you for the additional 12” block measurements. It was sweet of you to think of the optional size for us. I made the peppermint twist block in 12”.
