Boxed In Quilt

Updated: Sep 6, 2022

A fast, beginner + precut friendly quilt!

My spring and summer has been filled with lots of time outdoors at the baseball fields with my kids. A good outdoor quilt was a must, and this Boxed In quilt was perfect.

I really enjoy creating beginner + precut friendly quilts so that those who are just starting can find a good variety of patterns that aren't intimidating. At the same time, I like to create patterns that may look tricky, but really are simple once broken down. So grab your favorite Jelly Roll + Charm Pack and jump into Boxed In.

There are no funny angles, all squares + rectangles. AND best part, there is minimal point matching with the offset blocks!

Boxed In made it's debut this week in Issue 41 of Make Modern Magazine. I used Heirloom by Alexia Abegg for Ruby Star Society + some Add It Up in Metallic Copper from Ruby Star Society as well.

I just loved the earthy tones from the golds and rusts + the pops of blues that were apart of this Heirloom Collection paired with the Abacus quilting design - this quilt was a perfect fit for that on-the-go quilt.

Make Modern Magazine, have you heard of it? Some of you may be new to my blog and haven't heard me talk about them, so if you are new, or haven't heard of this magazine, let me tell you a little bit about it. It's an online (digital) monthly quilting magazine. It is based down under (Australia) and features designers world wide. It's full of great inspiration, fun new quilts, tips, tricks and more!
