Fun Christmas Present Blocks For Holiday Quilts and Even Pot Holders.
Start with this Christmas present block and then use it for all sorts of quilt projects. The ‘Christmas Present’ quilt adds to your Christmas decor when put on display. Use Candy Cane fabric for the backing to compliment the Christmas season, or else a fabric complimentary to the presents colors. There are so many holiday projects fo this block. One ‘Christmas Present’ block makes a really cute pot holder. Makes a great mug rug gift too. Or go ahead and join two blocks together and make up a placemat. If short on time and looking for a little extra Christmas decor display, why not make a mini quilt.
The quilt in the pattern image was made using Moda’s Jolly Holly fabric. Most holiday prints would look amazing.Use one or two holiday prints such as pointsettia’s and add traditional reds and greens of solids and prints. The white background feature the ‘presents’, and the swirly quilting gives the feeling of a flurry of snow. Hence the name of the pattern ‘Flurry’!
With intermediate experience, this quilt is a breeze, rendering a quilt size 55″ x 65″. The same fabric used for the presents is used for the inner border that completes the quilt beautifully. Small squares in the sashing using the same fabric adding a special feel. Consider using large squares of Candy Cane fabric for the corners of the inner border. A great compliment to the backing fabric to tie everything together.
