I love all things crafty. I squeeze in as much time sewing and creating as I can in between taking care of my two very small children, supportive husband, two energetic dogs, and one very overweight cat. I have recently decided to devote more time to the design aspect of crafting. I still love the actual sewing of the project but since I'm stuck at a desk for 8 hours a day it makes sense that I spend some of my time there designing patterns that others can use :).View all patterns by designer (55) »
I designed this block as part of a road trip themed quilt that I have been planning.
My husband always likes to keep the car several degrees cooler than I feel is comfortable when we take trips and I want to have a blanket to keep in the car. If you have a similar story, this may be the quilt for you!
This is the first block of what I hope to be a 9 block lap blanket.
The block is 10" finished and can be made using any color combination you have available in your stash. If you don't feel like making a whole quilt, it would make a good cushion or can be used as the panel of a tote or any other number of things...let you imagination go wild :)
Paper piecing instructions are not included but there are lots of great tutorials available online. Each section has been labelled and seam allowances have been added for each section. I suggest you set your printer to "no page scaling".
You may sell items made from this pattern on a small scale but please include "Pattern designed by Angela @ Sewing With Squeak" within the description.
