2019 Quilt Block Series by The Covered Chipboard
VIP …… You will find a PDF tutorial inside the download folder. Please note that it does not include videos. I strongly suggest that you watch the videos on this blog page before you start making the project!
Watch this video if you need to know how to use our SVG files in Cricut Design Space.
Below is a layout to help you locate the various parts. Note that the solid heart shape is not shown in the image below. That is the base for building the heart on.
Finished Measurements …
- Finished Quilt Block – 5″ x 5″
- Finished in frame – 7″ x 7″ with 5″ x 5″ opening
To make it easier, do a print and cut with the completed heart image seen above. It makes a great guide for you to build the project on. You could also use it on top of a card front or box top if you like!
- Heart parts and backing/border – cardstock
- Solid heart – Cricut chipboard (plain sheet in the Damask Chipboard pack – this is thinner than their heavy chipboard but you could use either)
- Frame parts – white cardstock
- Base parts – Cricut white Kraft Board or other very stiff material
You will need glue and/or score tape to construct the project. If you like, distress all edges of the heart parts before construction. Cut all parts of the project before beginning construction.
PREPARE THE FILE VIDEO
Orient the chipboard heart base correctly then cover the entire top with score tape (you can glue the pieces if you would rather). Now attach all heart pieces as seen below. Trim edges if needed.
Using the printed heart guide, glue the finished chipboard heart onto the guide.
Now attach the remaining design pieces using either score tape or glue.
Attach the finished block to the quilt block base creating a small border around the block. NOTE: if you did not watch the video you will have missed the part about duplicating one of the 5×5 bases to create this block backing! If that’s the case, you will need to do this now. This quilt block backing is made of cardstock and the square measures 5″ x 5″.
Next take the two small squares you cut in kraft board and attach them together. Attach these to the larger kraft board base using the score lines as a placement guide.
Carefully fold all frame parts as seen in the two images below.
Now you need to glue the four small frame sections to each other as seen below. Then connect the ends.
Now you need to attach the inner frame to the base. The frame will sit perfectly around the raised center areas we added to the base earlier.
Next attach the outside frame section to the part of the frame you just finished. Begin by attaching one side of the frame as seen below.
Now glue the small tabs all around the inside of the top frame section.
On the top section of the frame, bend the long tabs upward and out of your way. Apply glue to the inner tabs of the inside frame section, folding the top section down – glue it to the inner section lining up the edges as the glue dries. The tabs you folded back will be glued to the back of the frame.
When finished, if you feel that the back needs to be finished off, simply cut another of the large base pieces and attach it to the back as I’ve done.
Lastly you can add the front cover to the front of the frame.
Glue the quilt block inside the frame and you are all done!
I hope you enjoyed this month’s quilt block! We are working on the next two and will release them soon so that you have the option of purchasing in a bundled group and creating a four block quilt project.
