Cracker Box Quilt

This lovely quilt is simple to construct using the Jodi Barrows square in a square quilting technique. This quilting technique allows you to make the blocks with speed accuracy and ease. You will be surprised at how fast this pattern goes together. Yes, it is easy enough for beginners.



Jodi Barrows Square in a Square ORIGINAL Ruler

Jodi Barrows Quick & Easy Quilt book (normally packaged with the ruler)

Rotary Cutter with a new blade, cutting mat and a 6 X 24 ruler for cutting strips,

Normal sewing supplies (pins, needle, thread, thread-snips or scissors, seam ripper, etc)


NOTE: This quilt is designed to be “scrappy”, using 11 different print fabrics in the blocks.  It can also be made with just two fabrics, one being a neutral.  Stitch N Time staff can assist you with yardage should you elect to use a smaller number of fabrics in your quilt.

The fabric requirements listed are as per the pattern, Quilt size approx 58” X 67”

Neutral or background fabric2 ½ yards

1/3 yard each of 11 fabrics for the blocks (just under 4 yards total fabric)

For Borders, 3 fabrics: 1) 1 yard for middle border, 2) 3/4 yard for outer border, and 3) 1 yard for inner border.

Binding is 1 yard, backing is 4 yards.


To make the quilt like the sample, I got extra yardage and pieced the extra for my backing, pieced borders and pieced binding.  I got 1 yard each of 11 fabrics (to take advantage of the 20% off per yard @ Stitch N Time), and 6 yards of the background fabric.  This gave me the pieced top, all borders, backing and binding, with fabric left over.

About Quilts 24/7

 The Stitch-N-Time story began when my wife, Krista, who’d bought a BERNINA from a dealer a fair distance away from our home in Greencastle, PA, took the machine back in for service. The dealer asked if we knew anyone in our own area who would be interested in starting a BERNINA dealership, and the seed for our new business was....READ MORE
