Introducing Gift Box – My First Moda Bake Shop Quilt!

Gift Box Quilt
Yes, I know that it’s summer around here, but what can I say?  It’s Christmas in July!  So let me introduce you to my Gift Box quilt made with Kate Spain’s newest Christmas line Flurry.  The instructions for this quilt are located over at the Moda Bake Shop site, so be sure to check it out!  Even if you are not into Christmas fabrics, take a little peek…I have a lot of other fabric suggestions as well for this pattern.
I hope that you all enjoy the quilt pattern.  I’ve been snuggling with my new quilt ever since I finished it a few weeks back.  Just one of my many crazy projects that needed to be completed during my move across the country.  Sometimes I don’t think all of these things through. 😉

  1. Congratulations, Angela! It's a great pattern! My favourite gift to give (besides quilts) is books, especially for children's gifts. One can never have too many books.

  2. I usually give some knitted gifts (mittens, hats, scarves). This year there will be more sewing. And, it's not Christmas til I've watched "A Christmas Story" at least 3 times.

  3. What a great pattern! And I really like the idea of the snuggly backing fabric. I am the official "Book Auntie" in the family – all the kids always get books from me for Christmas and birthdays. I try to find unusual books that will spark their interest. Plus I make quilts, and knit stocking caps.

  4. WOW! Your quilt is amazing! My favourite Christmas story is my own- I meet my future husband at Carols by Candlelight, a Melbourne event, many years ago! This year we celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary!

  5. I tried leaving a comment, so forgive me if this is a duplicate. I love your quilt! My favorite Christmas tradition is taking a day off work and baking cookies for family/friends.

  6. I always like to watch "A Christmas Carol" at Christmas, I don't care which one it is, (and there are a few!) Congratulations on your new pattern, and thank you for providing it to us all for free. Linda

  7. Gift boxes is lovely and original. I love Christmas carols. We used to go caroling and I would love to do that again someday. Thanks for a chance at the giveaway.

  8. My brothers and I have a list of Christmas movies that we watch every year: White Christmas, Holiday Inn, It's a Wonderful Life … you get the idea. And now my children follow this tradition as well.

    Your pattern is very striking! Thanks so much for the chance to win Flurry — my new favorite Christmas item!

  9. Beautiful quilt! I always love the preparations right before Christmas like baking goodies and making ornaments and gifts. My family's Christmas Eve tradition is to roast chestnuts while listening to Christmas music or watching a holiday movie, especially the old stop-motion shows (love the abominable snowman!). Thanks for the giveaway 🙂

  10. I love this pattern and look forward to trying it out soon! Christmas is my favorite holiday. I love to give handmade gifts and am usually working until the last minute to get all the gifts completed. But I love doing it and seeing how excited everyone gets over the item!!! That used to be the best part of Christmas to me….before I had grandchildren!! 🙂

  11. The pattern is really great – and the fabrics are pretty lush too.

    Last Christmas we were snowed in, all were full of flu and then on Xmas morning our 6 year old daughter took it upon herself to open every single one of her presents at @4am whilst we were asleep. Let's just say there wasn't much Yo, Ho, Ho that day!
