Crayon Box Quilt Pattern


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, Crayon Box kits are not available.

Finishes 53″ x 64″.

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.
