2019 Quilt Block Series by The Covered Chipboard
Begin by choosing your materials and colors. If you will be making the entire project, it will look best if you stick with the same color and materials throughout the entire project. I would choose at least five main colors as various blocks will use between three and five colors.
If you want to create the dimensional effect within the block as I have, you will need to have materials with various thickness. I’ve created this affect by using the Cricut Damask Chipboard as my main pattern (topmost layer), a white medium weight chipboard (second layer) and Cricut Kraft Board (third layer). I have also used a colored cardstock in my designs. In some cases we might be layering shapes on top of each other to get the correct dimension as well. Of course you can always create your blocks without the dimensional affect if you want.
Here is a little video to show you how to import and prepare our SVG files for Cricut Design Space.
Refer to the images below for proper sizing of project elements. Most likely they will pop up in Cricut Design space at the correct sizes.
- 1 – White medium weight chipboard
- 2 – Cricut Damask chipboard
- 3 – Bazzill Bling cardstock – Blind Date
- 4 – Bazzill Bling cardstock – Blank Check
- Three bases (medium brown shapes) are all Cricut brown kraft board
- Single dark brown square – AC cardstock – Rocky Road
- Frame is all AC white cardstock
Quilt Block Pieces ….
Cut all of the quilt block pieces using the materials guide above or your own choice of materials. After cutting the medium weight chipboard pieces I decided they looked to flat next to the pretty Damask chipboard so I cut the same pieces again from white AC textured cardstock and glued those pieces on top of the white chipboard ones.
Because of the simplicity of this project there is no video on block assembly.
The Frame . . .
So there you have it. Your first completed quilt block! I hope you enjoyed the project and that you will return next month to craft another block with us.
