Retro Gifty Boxes

This is my last project for the Addicted to Scraps Team for Quiltmaker Magazine.  It's really kinda sad!  I really have had a great time working with Diane and the folks at Quiltmaker and especially re-creating Bonnie Hunter's block.

This time the pattern is called Gifty Boxes.  Bonnie made her pattern in red's and greens for a Christmas kind of theme.  I wanted to do a completely different color way.  My first thought was to do Gifty Boxes like Birthday Gifty Boxes and do bright colors.  And then I thought again... what about doing them in my retro kitchen color of turquoise blue and red.  I needed a table topper that would coordinate with my other retro things I made.  You might remember them...

Here is my table topper.

A few scrappy hour glass blocks

Some brick strips

And a Retro Gifty Boxes block.  

I actually made 2 different Retro Gifty Boxes blocks.  This one above and then another one substituting red strips for the turquoise blue strips.  

And a Retro Gifty Boxes table topper

I love how they make a cute pinwheel when set together.  

Some turquoise binding

 And some retro gingham backing and custom quilting.

I love the Retro Gifty Boxes and it looks perfect on my table.
