Introducing our Retro Car Quilt Blocks
Say hello to our Retro Cars Quilt Blocks! If you have been following us for a while, you may have seen snippets of some of these over the years. They have popped up in projects and on walls occasionally, so we decided it was time to publish them!
These six patterns are exclusively PDF patterns and will be sold individually and as a set! Each of these fusible appliqué patterns includes a coloring sheet, full-size tracing patterns and full-size layout guides ready to be printed on letter-size paper. They do require a little bit of scotch tape. New to raw edge fusible appliqué? Check out our photo tutorial here.
These super cute cars are so fun to play with. All the blocks are the same height and can easily be combined into a single project if you would like! We played with textures and added little bits of cork and vinyl as fenders and we added tulle to the windows. Feel free to have some fun with these - add a tree to the back of the truck, fussy cut some critters in the windows, add some luggage to the roof rack of the beetle, etc.
The Retro Truck block finishes 12in x 18in. We used assorted purples for the truck with bits of periwinkle cork for the fenders, a wood print for the truck bed slats and white tulle fabric for the windows.
This teardrop inspired Retro Camper block finishes 12in x 15in. We used assorted pinks for this camper with bits of pink vinyl for the fender and flag, white tulle fabric for the windows and some triple stitching for the window details.
This VW Bus inspired Retro Van block finishes 12in x 18in. We used assorted oranges for this van with bits of orange vinyl for the fender and front tire, white tulle fabric for the windows and some triple stitching for the louver details. This one has a fun surf board on the roof as a little bonus!
The Retro Taxi block finishes 12in x 15in. We used a yellow fabric for the cab with a bit of yellow vinyl for the fenders, a black and white checker print on the side, white tulle fabric for the windows and triple stitching for the “TAXI” sign.
This VW Bug inspired Retro Beetle block finishes 12in x 15in. We used a lime green fabric for the car body with bits of parrot vinyl for the fenders, white tulle fabric for the windows and triple stitching for the door detail and roof rack.
