It's time for December's Quilt Block Mania! This month's theme is Toys - so fun! I had quite a few ideas, but this cute little wagon won me over. It builds on the skills in my Pumpkin Quilt Block pattern, so I'm sure you'll be all set to make one of your own. If you haven't made the Pumpkin Quilt Block yet, it's available in my shop as a downloadable pattern.
The Toy Wagon Quilt Block is more of an intermediate block, simply because there are smaller pieces. The pattern will definitely give more experienced quilters the chance to show off their piecing skills. The block measures 12.5"x12.5", unfinished. Each of the blocks in the series are the same size, so you can combine blocks to put together your own toy-themed quilt or pick and choose your favorites. (scroll down for the list of designers and links to their patterns)
To make this block, I used a variety of Ombre fabrics by V & Co. from Moda: Original Ombre, Ombre Fairy Dust, and Ombre Wovens. You can certainly use any fabrics that you have, but if you want to make your own with V & Co. Ombre fabrics, I put together a little Toy Wagon Fabric Bundle that you can buy separately. The kit includes enough fabric to make 4 complete blocks.
I also put together a fabric bundle inspired by December's Quilt Block Mania color scheme. The colors are so fun and vibrant. Use it to make your own coordinating blocks from this month's designers, or for any upcoming project.
