Fun Friday: A Very Gifted Block (Pre-Cut Friendly, too)!

Tina's Gift Box Block

One of our talented quilting friends, Tina, stopped by the other day to share her current project with us, made with Clothworks fabric, of course!  Check out this darling ‘Pretty Package’ Block she pieced together using the sweet snowman collection released last year by Clothworks called Creature Comforts by designer Barb Tourtillotte.  This is Tina’s contribution to a block exchange. Pretty nifty, eh?!  I also love how she set off her block using the white tonal Impressions Sprig fabric by Clothworks, too!!

For those interested in making their own ‘Pretty Package’ Block, there’s a wonderful video tutorial found here on youtube.  Not only is this block super cute, but it’s pre-cut friendly, too (perfect for 5″ and 10″ squares)!

And be sure to head to your LQS to stock up on Clothworks holiday fabrics (Frosty Fun, 25 Days of Christmas, Christmas Wishes, and Enchantment to name a few), because pretty soon they will be here before you know it!

Happy Sewing!
