Boxed Squares is one of my favorites.
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
It is easy as long as you sew straight seams in your tubes, and cut properly. Even failing that, the blocks are cut on the bias, which gives you a little play to fit your seams... I did take a little extra time (and some re-dos) to get the points to match really well. I'm a stickler for points and can't let them pass when they don't look perfect or get cut off.Originally Posted by charity-crafter
Ooooh, I love this one! What a beautiful quilt pattern for batiks!Originally Posted by twistedstitcher
Do a search on the board for Boxed Squares, there's lots of pictures of them made by board members, many of them in batiks. I made two of them with bali pops, and they were gorgeous.Originally Posted by sewbizgirl
They are beautiful! The one in browns would be a great quilt for a guy...Originally Posted by twistedstitcher
Wow, thanks for the boxed squares pattern link and the note to search for photos on this site. I love to find different views of patterns.
That may be my next project. It looks so cool with the batiks.
Thanks for sharing - I need to start a "to do" list! One that is written down somewhere and the first quilt on it needs to be Boxed Squares in Batiks. (Right after I finish 5 wips.) :)
I found this one recently that looks promising,
a scappy bento box with a nice tutorial
I maybe able to make a QOV if I stay with maybe a white, beige, gold tone and them mix and match my red and blue strips.
