Throwback Thursday – the Christmas Edition?

Posted on: November 5th, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

I recently shared this to my Facebook page and this post went viral! I guess for quilters and crafters who are planning a handmade holiday, it’s time to start thinking about Christmas gift making.

The Boxes-N-Bows quilt block is a quick make and a great way to show off some of your favourite holiday fabrics. This block can be used to create a fast and fun table topper.

    Love this! Great timing – will have some scraps leftover (from a Xmas table runner I'm making) and this will be a perfect way to use them up. Thanks Lorna 🙂

    If only I had the time, and space on my to-do list, to get one done before Christmas. Very cute pattern. x
