Little Red Wagon Quilt Block Tutorial


Welcome back for another National Day quilt block tutorial! This time, it's for National Little Red Wagon Day




Which was back on March 25th. I WILL catch up to real time, eventually! In the meantime, better late than never. :D 




This one took a while to configure. I almost gave up, but this is what I settled on finally. Here is how it goes together. Buttons for the wheels are optional. :D 




Fabric A (sky):
(1) 1" sq. (~)
(1) 1 x 2" (>>)
(1) 1 1/2" sq. (*)
(1) 1 1/2 x 3"
(2) 2" sq.
(1) 3" sq.
(1) 4 x 4 1/2"


Fabric B (grass):
(4) 1 1/4" sq. (+)
(1) 1 1/2" sq. (*)
(1) 1 1/2 x 2" (#)
(1) 2 x 3"


Fabric C (dark red):
(1) 1 1/2 x 8 1/2"


Fabric D (lighter red):

Thanks for such an adorable block. I was wondering if most of the "Day of Year" blocks are the same size? They are so much fun and I'm enjoying seeing your different designs. Also, I love your new fabric design. Thanks for all you do.

For somebody who is trying to "catch up" you sure get a lot done along the way. You are amazing. The tutorials you post each day make somebody's day!
