Vehicle Variety Car – 3 size FPP Block & Baby Quilt Pattern
This pattern started as single panel for a pouch for my navigation device and developed into a whole baby quilt. You can use this block in various projects: a mini quilt, a draw string for toys or a pillow. Or make several of them and turn them into a wall hanging or a cute little baby quilt. The ebook has instructions and fabric requirements for four different baby quilt versions from 34“ x 34“ to 43.5“ x 43.5“.
The block pattern comes in three sizes (8“, 9“ and10“) for both directions (car heading left, car heading right), with a coloring sheet and a bunch of design examples. It gives you three different options for the block design: monochromatic background, two backgrounds for sky and street and an additional alternate section for a street with central strips. The individual sections are clearly labeled and have a ¼“ seam allowance. There are no curves or y-seams. The pattern comes as PDF files in A4 and US Letter paper format.
This pattern requires some experience with foundation paper piecing (FPP) due to sections with very small pieces (including an option to skip those). It does not include detailed FPP instructions. You can find lots of free tutorials for the various FPP methods online. A single block can be made with just a few cotton scraps from your stash.

AnneT – neurodiverse creative chaos
creations of a neurodiverse mind
I grew up with the sound of my mum's and grandma's sewing machines and have been sewing since my teenage years. Focused on clothes and accessories first a few years ago I caught the patchwork virus and have been hooked up ever since.
Meanwhile I create my own designs and write patterns for traditional piecing and foundation paper piecing in English and German for beginners and advanced sewers. I love to experiment with different colors and designs and to see what others create with my ideas.
