Merry Christmas in July! Welcome to the Think Christmas blog hop! I have chosen to show you a very simple little block that makes a quilt (or table runner, or whatever you decide to make with it) that looks like a gift. Because I love using ribbons in my quilts, this was something I thought up to incorporate them. (Yes, they wash beautifully! The quilt above has been washed and the ribbons came through with flying colors.)Be sure to scroll down after the tutorial to find my giveaway and the other participant links to the blog hop!
|1. For each block you will need 4 squares cut 6 1/2" and 4 squares cut 4". You also need ribbon.|
2. Mark a line diagonally from corner to corner on each of the 4" squares. This is done on the wrong side of the fabric.
3. Move the ruler down 1/2" and make another mark.
4. Place each 4" square right sides together on the corner of a 6 1/2" square.
5. Sew across both lines on each of three of the squares. Wait on the fourth. You will be inserting ribbon.
6. Loop the ribbon over to form about 3 loops.
7. It is helpful to sew across the bottom and trim.
8. On the fourth square, sew across the lines, but leave a 1" opening in the top line. Insert the ribbon from the front and then finish sewing that seam.
9. Cut each square 1/4" between each sewn line. Press the seam to the darker fabric. Set the smaller half square triangle pieces aside.
10. Arrange the four pieces in the way you wish. I chose to make my background whites different shades for interest.
11. Sew two pieces together, but pay close attention to matching the seams. Sew the other two pieces together in the same way.
12. Press your seams open.
13. Place these two pieces right sides together and sew, again taking care to match seams. Press these seams open also.
14. Pin a piece of ribbon across the middle of the square.
15. Machine applique the ribbon in place. I wanted my packages closer together than the block allowed, so I planned it out so that my blocks interlocked and had the edge of another package at each corner. It's easy to do if you lay it all out before you sew.
16. You may have noticed that you made half square triangles at the same time as making the blocks! Mine came out perfectly! I'm sure it had something to do with math, but I didn't figure it out. (I avoid math when possible!) Sew these together and use them in a border if you wish. I chose to put batting behind each "present" and quilt around them individually. I also made the outer border "puffy" by adding extra batting behind it.
My little elf is enjoying himself by relaxing on the Christmas quilt! I think I tricked him into believing it was already Christmas!He hasn't gone outside in the 100 degree heat yet!
Thank you for stopping by! And for reading this far, you have a chance to win this really gorgeous fabric panel to use as a wall hanging, the center of a quilt, a table runner, or whatever you wish! And to sweeten the deal, I am throwing in my "Peace on Earth" Christmas banner pattern. Just be a follower for a chance to win and leave a comment telling me that you are and telling us all what your dream Christmas gift would be! (One comment per person please. I will be using the Random Number Generator to choose a winner. Open to everyone! I'll choose a winner Monday, August 6. You have through Monday at midnight to comment.)
This is a large panel (about 36" x 45").

I just want my daughter to continue to live a happy, healthy life.ReplyDelete
Merry Christmas, Linda I have just become a follower. Thank you for the presents which you have given in the quilt - is that poinsettia quilting I see?. The tutorial is excellent with placing the ribbon bows & tie as embellishment.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the 'presents' of the Santa hanger which wants to be embellished, quilted with extra filling to bringout the goodies & for the "Peace on Earth" banner pattern will be buying candy canes as soon as I see them.
My dream is for good health with a sewing machine.
Wow, it is stunning!ReplyDelete
I became a follower. I have been looking for a Santa panel everywhere. Thank you so much for the chance.ReplyDelete

Good Morning LINDA, I don't even know where to begin, as Steven Curtis Chapman sings "Christmas is all in the Heart" I am listening to my very fav Christmas tunes while I hop from blog to blog.ReplyDelete
I am thinking of that one little gift under the tree, one for him and one for her...It is a wonderful song about the struggles of a young couple and how wrapped they are in each others love... And I cried when I saw yours..It is a beautiful block and made into a beautiful quilt...
Christmas is all in the heart...especially at Linda's home this morning...well done sweetie!

Linda this quilt is just adorable....what kind of ribbon did you use? It looks like regular satin ribbon - I've never tried washing it but if that's what it is, how wonderful! My favorite present? Having all my children and grandchildren together in my home - that hasn't happened in years unfortunately. blessings, marleneReplyDelete
great quilt, it is so cute, I will be a new followerReplyDelete
Dream Christmas for me would be to have all my children and their families home with me for Christmas. Wow house full would be GREAT! It would really FEEL like Christmas again. We would have to make all the food and cookies again. We really don't NEED to make all of the goodies anymore, (but we do)!ReplyDelete
Love the idea of using the ribbon as bow and wrap - just clever. And the quilting is exquisite!! Oh silly elf, yes, he would want to go back into storage once in the heat. My favorite present - well, would love my own home.ReplyDelete

Your quilt is just toooo cute! My favorite Christmas present would be for good health for all my family.ReplyDelete
Thank you for showing us how to make your Christmas Quilt. Very cute and clever. I am a follower and have enjoyed myself while visiting. My Christmas dream would be to go to Vegas one year. I have never been there and just wondered what it would be like to enjoy Christmas there one time. You have generously shared with all of us and have given all of your followers a chance to win a cute Christmas panel and a banner pattern. Thank you for making this Think Christmas so special - for all of us.ReplyDelete
I love this beautiful quilt. And since I have seen it in person, I KNOW it is even more beautiful when you can see it and hold it in your hands and see all the fine details in the stippling and stitches. My dream Christmas would be to have a huge barndemonium to entertain my growing family decorated to the nines in Christmas lights and colorful decorations, snow on the ground outside, and a fire in the fireplace (or woodburner) and cozy beds in the loft overlooking the space below and someone else cooking the turkey and doing the sides! You said dream! I could continue....ReplyDelete
This is a wonderful quilt...I love the 3D ribbons. Does one type of ribbon work better than another?ReplyDelete
Thanks for the tutorial on the puff quilts, too. I enjoyed that, and hope to make one soon. :)
Eep! I forgot....I'm a follower, and my dream Christmas would be for all of my kids to be home (and their spouses, too, of course! LOL) for Christmas!Delete
This comment has been removed by the author.ReplyDelete
I follow. My dream Christmas would be to have my immediate family together and willingly decorate the tree with no arguing. I would wear my frilly Christmas apron and serve egg nog and homemade cookies and everyone would be happy.ReplyDelete
Love your quilt and the beautiful colors you used! The 3D ribbons really add something special! Thanks for the tutorial.ReplyDelete
I really enjoy this tutorial. I have always saved the cut offs of my squares and just saved them in the box. Now I have a whole new way to cut and save and use them. I am following you.ReplyDelete
That is adorable!!!! I love the way the little packages pop off the quilt. I am a new follower and my wish would be to have the whole family together and awaken to a snowy Christmas morning.ReplyDelete
Beautiful Quilt. Thanks for the tutorial. My Dream Christmas is when we can organize our family of 4 daughters,spouses and 6 grandkiddies to be here all at the same times.It does not happen often but it is great when it does.ReplyDelete
oooh, I love this quilt! Thanks for the wonderful tutorial!ReplyDelete
I'm a new follower of your blog, too. Would love the panel and your "Peace on Earth" banner pattern.
When my kids were little... and even now when they ask what I want for Christmas, I will always say, "Peace on Earth." I know, I know... it's cliche, but I somehow hoped it made them think of the plight of others first rather than themselves (for what they wanted) and to remind them of the Best Christmas Gift of all... the One who brings Peace...

(and howdy, or rather "hola y mucho gusto," from faaaaaar west Tx.) ;-)
Oh My! Thank you for sharing! You are terrific! I NEED to find time to make this quilt. Again, THANKYOU! ToniReplyDelete
Oh noooo, now that's another quilt that has gone onto my "must-do SOON" list. It's gorgeous.ReplyDelete
I'm a new follower by email. Thanks for sharing this beautiful quilt and the generous giveaway.ReplyDelete
I've been a follower for a long time! I love everything you make!! That little quilt with packages is precious!!ReplyDelete
What an awesome giveaway! Hmm.. I don't celebrate Christmas but I would love to receive clothes. I think giving clothes is really hard because you have to know the person's taste. So the giver has to go to a lot of effort to find the right outfit. I often buy my kids outfits as presents and I go to such length to find something fab.
Love that little package quilt. I am a follower. My dream Christmas would be spending the week somewhere that has snow. It's hot where I live.ReplyDelete
So that is how you add the bow. I love it! Thanks for showing us how. and your quilt is just stunning!ReplyDelete
I want a new sewing room for Christmas! How is that for thinking big.ReplyDelete
Your quilt is really creative - love the bows
What a totally adorable little "Christmas packages" quilt! Thanks for the tute too.ReplyDelete
My dream Christmas would be for there to be peace in this world, I know that is asking the impossible, but that's my wish anyway!
Thanks for the tutorial Linda. I'll have to try using ribbon on one of my projects. I'm a follower. I don't know what my dream gift would be, I have all that I want.ReplyDelete
Wow Linda, this is so beautiful! Thanks for sharing your wonderful tutorial too! Of course I am a follower and my dream Christmas present would be a long arm machine.......of course that isn't happening :)ReplyDelete

Hiya! I am an email follower (now). I love your mini-quilt, so cute! My dream Christmas gift would be to get the house that I've had my eye on for the past 3 years. I am on disability and it would have to come from Santa (or Publisher's Clearinghouse, lol). But I can't complain, I have a very nice place to live, a wonderful family, and food and cool and heat, what more could I ask for. Thank you for the giveaway. The panel is beautiful, and I'm sure the banner is too. Blessed be, hugs!!!ReplyDelete

HM - my ideal Christmas present would be a BED AND BREAKFAST for quilters.....do you think that I will get it? LOL
Your Christmas gift quilt is so precious. Thanks for putting your tutorial in a printable format. It makes it so much easier to save projects to work on. My ideal Christmas present would be a new sewing machine that does embroidery. Although I love to do hand embroidery, I have a few projects I would like to do using machine embroidery. Thanks for the opportunity to win-that would really motivate me to make something Christmas themed.ReplyDelete
I love your quilt. My ideal Christmas gift would be a cleaning service about the first of December, so I could do all the decorating, sewing or baking without worrying about having to clean, also. I don't really need anything except for everyone to be healthy and able to be home for the holidays. That would be wonderful!ReplyDelete

Cute quilt! Love the tutorial. My dream Christmas gift besides having all my family home for Christmas would be to have my sewing room finished!!

My dream Christmas Present would be more time to sew!!!ReplyDelete

A dream Christmas would have Family gathered at my home for HUGE amounts of food (I miss the times that all my aunts and cousins would get together for the two weeks before to make Christmas goodies.)We do not need lots of gifts, just to all be together would be the best.ReplyDelete
I am a new follower; I found you through the Christmas Blog Hop. I will be using your block to make a new table runner for my coffee table. Thanks for sharing.
Tina, I've been trying to respond to your comment to thank you, but I keep getting a notice that the message cannot be delivered to your email address. I hope you will check back here so you can see that I am appreciative of your kind words and your following! Thank you!Delete
LINDA this is one of the CUTEST things I have ever seen! I am marking it for the future. Add the ribbons is brilliant and I love how the boxes are tossed across the quilt. Wonderful!ReplyDelete
I'll have to make this quick, easy, cute quilt to hang on the wall behind my front door at Christmas ( been looking for something) signed up as a follower. Ideal Christmas would be family together.ReplyDelete
Love the web site, dream christmas would be finally getting the long arm quilting machine I have been saving up for...ReplyDelete
Thanks for the wonderful tutorial. I didn't know that the ribbon would wash up so well - good to know! Darling quilt but I really am not ready to start thinking about Christmas quite yet.ReplyDelete
My dream Christmas would be to sit around with my Dad, Aunt and Uncle hearing them play guitar, banjo, fiddle and harmonica, singing Tennessee hillbilly religious songs that were favorite of their mom's (my grandmother whom I never met). Of course my mom would be there too and my little brother who never made it past 16 year. This gathering? Held up in heaven of course celebrating the birth of the one who makes it all possible for us to see each other again!ReplyDelete
For an earthly Christmas, being with family -- DH, DS, furbabies, family and friends and church family celebrating our savior's birth.
The Christmas gift I would like is peace on earth. If that is impossible (and I suspect it is), a nice new Mercedes Benz will do. Now, I must say that I love your little holiday quilt and it would be perfect to start the Christmas sewing season with. Thanks for the great tips! I'm happy to be a follower.ReplyDelete
I'm already cutting out the fabric. LOVE THIS! Maybe working on Christmas will make the 105 degrees outside feel cooler. My Christmas wish would be to have all my family here safe and sound--winning the lottery wouldn't hurt either.ReplyDelete

I love your mini quilt and am definitely putting this on my to do list. Being from Australia, I dream of having a white Christmas....corny I know...but there ya go :)
Ciao Linda, sono Barbara, scrivo dall'Italia. Ho trovato il tuo blog per caso e ti faccio tanti complimenti per il tuo blog, il tutorial e i magnifici lavoro che crei.ReplyDelete
Per Natale mi piacerebbe avere la giornata lunga, che durasse 36 ore per stare con le persone a cui voglio bene e poter cucire anche un po'.....
Buon Natale in anticipo!

I'm already a follower. I receive your updates by email. Thank you for the lovely tutorial. I love the way you inserted the bows. A special Christmas gift for me would be a new kitchen floor. Mine has holes worn through.ReplyDelete
I got. Exactly what I wanted last year, a sewing machine. This year I would like some money to use as I please. I save alot of money on my hobby by garage sali g and thrifting. But itS not a one trip thing.ReplyDelete
