I am especially excited about the Folded Box blocks. I have seen this pattern in different places over the past few years, and was always intrigued by the 3-D look you can achieve with the right color placement. The first time I really noticed this block was on the Martingale website in this photo from the book
Patchwork Palette - No-Fail Color Plans for Captivating Quilts by Donna Lynn Thomas.
Just last week I ran across it again, this time in a blog post for the Vintage Shirting and Dress Fabric blog hop. This version was also made by Donna Lynn Thomas, and her blog post includes instructions for making a 12" block. I'm not sure if there is another name for this block, so I will go with the one Donna uses.
Be sure to check out all of the wonderful scrappy projects at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge every Saturday and at Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is more fun than Housework on Sunday.
