I Wish You a Merry QAL Block #8 Release!

I Wish You a Merry Quilt-a-Long

Block #8 “With Love at Christmas” is brought to you by the talented Sola Ajisafe of Alice Samuel’s Quilt Co where you will find the complete block pattern.

“With Love at Christmas” block  by Sola Ajisafe

My Tips:

  • I always read through the entire pattern first, so I have a good understanding of how it is going to be assembled.
  • Use the provided coloring page to get ideas how you want to make your three-dimensional gift boxes pop!
  • I wrote a list of which size cut pieces went with which fabric color/pattern I chose. This especially helps if you are using a different color theme than that which is used in the pattern diagram example.


  • Press your seams towards the center ribbon fabric to make it look like the ribbon is on top of the box.
  • I chose the applique option for the top piece ribbon so in the “Piecing the Top of Box” section I skipped step B and C.

With so many possible combinations to make your 3-D gift box shine, I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with for theirs.

It’s just not Christmas without pretty presents under the tree. This present block has doubled the love! 💕🎁🎁💕

Please visit all the hostesses blogs to read their tips and see their completed blocks in a array of fabric and color inspirations!
