Crayon Box Quilt


The 60° diamond is the basis for this striking quilt. The diamonds are cut from 2½” Pixie Strips for a speedy start. (Jinny’s Perfect Cut 60º Ruler makes quick work of cutting the strips, then cutting, marking and trimming the individual diamonds.)

Crayon Box is a great take-along, hand-piecing project, but it can also be sewn by machine.

We are sorry, we are sold out of the Galaxy Crayon Box kits and will not be able to make more until the Galaxy pixie roll is back in stock in summer 2021.

Finishes 53″ x 64″.



The Complete Kit includes the pattern plus all the fabric you need for the quilt top and binding. You get forty fabrics in the included 2½” Pixie Strip roll for great variety and faster cutting.

A Printed Pattern Only option is also available.

Backing Required: 3½ yards
Suggested Backing: 7427-24 (tropics), 6931-27 (grassland), 6931-27 (galaxy),  5866-75 (sunset)

Pattern Correction

Some early versions of the pattern have the following errors. Check your pattern and make any of the following corrections as necessary.

•  At Step 5 for Border 4, the fabric remaining after cutting the border should be reserved for the binding.

•  In the Tropics Colorway Guide only, the 6D, 6E and 6F units are mislabeled.  6D should be labeled 6E; 6E should be labeled 6F; 6F should be labeled 6D. Make two of 6D and one of each of the other units. A corrected image of the units is below.

•  In the Tropics Colorway Guide only, in Unit 2, two fabrics are labeled as 32. The upper left fabric in this unit should be labeled as 31 as shown below.
