Boxstep Quilt Pattern Release

Aug 27, 2013

I am happy to finally show you the fruits of my labor this summer.  A new pattern!  Meet Boxstep.  A quilt pattern for fat quarters or scraps with a little spring in it's step.  I decided to call this quilt Boxstep because the four squares in the corners of the block reminded me of the dancing diagram that teaches the "box step" in ballroom dancing.

The pattern lets you choose from 3 sizes to make. 
  • Baby 34" x 49"
  • Lap 62" x 62"
  • Twin 77 x 92"
  • Each size uses a 14" x 14" finished block
  • Fat Quarter and Scrap Friendly

                        

I made the Lap size quilt and it is perfectly suited to a little outside picnicking or daydreaming.  

There are 2 styles of block construction suggested in the pattern.  The traditional setting shown above - or the scrappy setting shown in the photo of the pillow below.  The pattern is set up to call for fat quarters, but as you can see, a scrappy version is so fun also.  You can mix and match the units of the block to suit your style.


What a fun little boy quilt!  I love how the green background fabric makes the prints really stand out.  This is the Baby Boxstep, tested by Jaclyn of Bolamo Design Studio.


And here is another Lap size Boxstep using some of my favorite DS and Sandi Henderson prints by Maureen.  It has such a soft and soothing look to it.  A huge Thank You to both my pattern testers!


This quilt pattern is geared for Advanced Beginners.  The 2 main piecing techniques used in this quilt are Hourglass blocks and No-Waste Flying Geese.  If you've never tried these techniques, I've provided clear instructions and diagrams to help you through it.  They are so much fun!

Boxstep Quilt Pattern (PDF) is now available in my shop!  It will be on sale all this week for just $4.99.  After it's debut week, Boxstep will bump up to $7.99 as it's regular price.

Enjoy!  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!  {annemarie@genxquilters.com}
