Wrap it Up Block Merry Christmas in July Quilt-a-long! My goal was to make my block very easy so that anyone could make it. And I wanted to play into the holiday theme without being too overt. So I present you with my Wrap it Up Block! Inspired by Christmas presents themselves. Since we are only making one block for this quilt, the steps I took to make my wonky block are a little different. It still is really easy and fast and could easily be adjusted to make several blocks at once.
Our block, once squared up, measures 7 ½ x 14 ½ inches unfinished.
All seams are ¼ inch.
For those of you with more experience, here is what you’ll need to get started:
• 6 strips 4x11 inches (or so, it’s wonky, so they can vary as you wish)
• 2 strips of white 1 ½ x 22 inches.
Now if you need a little more detail, here are the steps I took.
1. Stack your fat quarter (or scrap) fabrics (I used 3 but you could certainly use more) on top of each other and cut strips 4x22 inches. Since the blocks are wonky, I didn’t worry about getting everything perfectly straight prior to cutting.
