Treasure Boxes Quilt Along - piecing

Pin It
Sorry they weren't up yesterday... but here you go! :)

Piecing instructions for the Treasure Boxes Quilt Along. :)
See previous posts here.

Get a pdf copy of these directions here.

After step 1, you do not have to trim your HST's to make your design work, but if you'd like to trim them to 8 1/2" square (unfinished), then they will be perfectly perfect. :)

Make 12 blocks for the larger size (cut from fat quarters).
Make 20 blocks for the charm size!

Don't forget to add your photos to the flickr group!  (You can see Michelle was a bit of an over-achiever). :)

You have 2 weeks to make your blocks!  We'll be linking up the week of the U.S.Thanksgiving with finished/donated quilts  for a chance to win fabulous prizes from Julie at The Intrepid Thread! :)

P.S. I'm doing a pattern giveaway over on facebook because we hit 100 "likes!" :)
Go tell me which pattern you'd like to win, and I'll pick a winner on Monday. :)

And... in there a plan for the left over triangles?

I have all my squares together. They are now in sets of two. I am planning to finish putting them together today.
When will we get the instructions for the border?

Hi Bethany -
I'm working on instructions -- I didn't realize it had been 3 weeks! (we're in harvest time, and I lost track! I thought it had only been 2!)
Look for them this week. If you email me, I can give them to you ahead of time, but your comments are set to "no reply" when I tried to email you back!

can you please tell me what size should the smaller squares be? thnk you :)

Tracey Jacobsen said...

Patricia -- it depends on what size you're making. 2 1/2" smaller squares for a charm square or 4 1/2" for the bigger size! There's a link to previous posts in the blog post if you need them! :)
