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! My favorite Christmas tradition is baking and making candy and fixing lots of little of baskets of goodies for my friends and family. I love having something homemade with love to give to people.

  2. Congrats on the pattern, it's really cute. My favorite gift, some would consider boring, would be a gift certificate to about any place, especially Starbucks or a fabric store…that way I can purchase whatever is my fancy at the time!

  3. Good on ya with the sweet pattern! I always enjoy making something for the girls at work for Christmas – one year pillows, another was little bags – this year, hmmm maybe mug rugs or wine bottle covers.

  4. I just finished looking at the tut on Moda. Love it! Favorite Christmas treat is Ribbon Candy! No one else in my family liked it but me which meant that I got it all.

  5. Great giveaway! Great pattern, too. When my kids were tiny we started the tradition of having Santa drop off a "magic elf" (not elf on a shelf) and that has been so fun each year.

  6. Great pattern, congratulations! I just inherited two very vintage shelf elves (one is cute and one is super scary) so I can't wait to use them with my son this year! It is going to be so fun!

  7. I came over here from MBS to say Congratulations on your first recipe there. I really love the quilt pattern and the colors. Great job.

    And how lucky too there's a giveaway today. I did just click to follow your blog so I can keep an eye out on other stuff you are doing since I love the quilt so much. My favorite Christmas song is "Oh Holy Night"; have loved that song since I was very young.

  8. Congratulations on your new quilt Angela! 🙂
    My Xmas tradition is to watch Carols by Candlelight on Xmas Eve, it is a lovely time to wind down and relax after the hectic weeks of shopping for gifts and food, wrapping gifts, sending cards, etc. I just love it! Then there is the expectation of a lovely day to come. I have just noticed another of your followers mention their Favourite Xmas song- "O Holy Night" it is also mine. 🙂

  9. Love your quilt design. My favorite christmas thing is making candies with my MIL. nothing like homemade mounds balls!

  10. oh- and growing up our santa would leave a small present in our stockings each day about 5 days before christmas.

    Apparently this helped keep us kids out of the presents under the tree. Santa knows all the tricks!

  11. Any homeade gift or food item is a fav of mine. Enjoy making Christmas goodies and love to snuggle in with the family and enjoy Christmas music.

  13. We love Christmas around here since our kids are 4, 2, and 1. My favorite thing about Christmas is the baking – we love tasty Christmas treats!

  14. One of my fave Christmas stories is this one:
    There is a game called Pig Mania, where the "dice" are actually little pigs that you roll. My sister loved to play this game, so I decided to give her one for Christmas. But….being the 'evil little sister' that I am, I opened the box up & took out all the game stuff, and put a nice sweater in it instead. A friend re-shrink wrapped it for me, so it looked totally unopened! lol Then I wrapped the game stuff up in a separate giftie, and then made sure that she opened the sweater/Pig Mania box first. She was SO excited when she saw what it was!! I had to prompt her to open the box all the way up…the look on her face was priceless – struggling to look happy with a sweater! (It was a very nice one) If I remember right, she probably smacked me when she opened the actually game pieces later! (All this was to get back at her for making me follows clues all over the house for like 45 minutes, to find my gift of the game "Clue" when I was a kid, 15 years prior! 😀

  15. It is a lovely quilt, I especially enjoy quilts with a black background. Christmas is the time when the whole family gets together, so each year we schedule a family portrait at an inexpensive studio nearby. We bring our own funny & unusual props and have a wonderful time. I love looking at the pictures during the year. Thanks for the chance to remember and maybe win some fabric.

  16. Beautiful quilt. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Christmas fabrics. I have a whole drawer of just Christmas fabrics. So looking forward to Christmas this year when our two sons, wives and children will be "home" for Christmas. We get them every other year in our home, and at Thanksgiving the other years. We share. This year we'll have four grandkids under the age of four running around the place! I make very special Christmas stockings for each family member…one new one to make this year. I invite the mom & dad to help design it from my copious Christmas Stash. It would be awesome to win this fabric and add it into the mix! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  17. I love Christmas. I actually love decorations more than any gift probably, so those are always appreciated, but I recently got a KitchenAid mixer as a Christmas present and that was by far the best present I've ever received. Hopefully this year I get and give lots of fabric 🙂

  18. What an amazing quilt! Great job!! Not to be too mushy, but the best Christmas present I got was back in 1996, when my then boyfriend (now hubby) returned from a six-month Navy cruise…with a diamond for me. 🙂

  19. Congratulations! Favorite tradition: A new one for our family is new stockings every year. It's been fun picking out the fabrics, finding or drafting patterns and sewing them up!

  20. Thank you for your great Gift Box pattern. I've already downloaded it from the Moda Bake Shop! Your instructions are wonderfully clear. I agree with you about backing it with flannel for folks in colder climes.
    My favorite thing to do around Christmas is to bake, bake, bake cookies which I then wrap and deliver to our neighbors. My husband & I wear Santa hats and tell the neighbors that we're Santa's elves… We have a lot of fun with this.
    Thanks again for the great pattern AND the opportunity to win some pretty Flurry fabric!
