All Wrapped Up Block Tutorial – Celebrate Christmas Quilt Along with Quilting Gallery

Celebrate Christmas Quilt-Along and Super Deals for Quilters

Hi! I am happy to be sharing with you a block that I designed as part of a 36 block quilt along. It’s fun, easy to make and I hope you enjoy it!

I’ll start with a little background on the Celebrate Christmas Quilt Along. On Quilting Gallery's site every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for 12 weeks straight you will find one new designer with a new block and full instructions on how to make that block. To make it even better, a "Super Deal" is posted along with each block from places like Fat Quarter Shop! (You can find all the information for it here plus a fun contest.)

Onto my block…

All Wrapped Up

Fabric/Cuting Instructions:

I used a fat quarter set of Jason Yenter's Holiday line for In the Beginning Fabrics. Wintergraphix that I purchased from FabricFascination. I just LOVE this fabric and have been itching to try it out on something! This was just perfect!

0371 - 12.5” square of Fabric 1


4 – 1.5” x 18” strips of Fabric 2

il_570xN.1775636742 – 1.25” x 18” strips of Fabric 3



Step 1. Sew a strip of Fabric 2 to a strip of Fabric 3. Press towards Fabric 3.

Step 2. Sew a second strip of Fabric 2 to the other side of Fabric 3 (sandwiching fabric 3 between 2 strips of fabric 2). Press towards Fabric 3. 040

Step 3. Repeat this with the remaining strips of fabric.


Step 4. Take your 12.5” square of Fabric 1. Cut a wonky diagonal somewhere through the approximate middle portion of the fabric. 042

Now, it doesn’t really matter were – just make sure to be at least 2 inches from either corner.


Step 5. Sew your strip onto the left diagonal. Press towards Fabric 1. Leave a good portion of your 18” triple strip on the top and bottom of the square. It will help later when you need to square things up.


Step 6. Sew your strip onto the right diagonal. Press towards Fabric 1.014 Step 7. Turn your fabric and cut another randomly wonky diagonal through the fabric.


Step 8. Repeat steps 5 and 6 in this direction.


Step 9. Square your piece up to a 12.5” square. I also did this ‘wonkily’.054The Finished BLOCK! All Wrapped Up!017 In this picture you can see that I always pressed towards the darker fabric.


This is my first ‘block tutorial’ and I realized after the first block that I didn’t take enough step by step pictures along the way. So, I ended up having two blocks by the time I was done! I think with a few more I’ll have a nice table runner or table topper perfect for the holidays!
