Truck Quilt Block Tutorial for National Off Road Day

Hello, again! Today, I thought I'd post the next block tutorial in line for my collection of National Days quilt blocks. This quilt block is for National Off Road Day. (Oct. 8)

I'm not going to sugar coat it, this one has lots of corner flipping and point matching. It never ceases to amaze me, the shapes and blocks that can be made with a few tiny pieces of fabric and some straight seams. In this case, lots of seams.

Here is how this 4x4 truck goes together.. It would make such a cute zip pouch for a little one.

Fabric A (background):
(5) 1" sq. (~)
(4) 1 1/4" sq. (+)
(1) 1 1/4 x 1 1/2" (=)
(1) 1 1/4 x 3 1/4"
(3) 1 1/2" sq. (*)
(1) 1 3/4" sq.
(1) 1 3/4 x 3"
(1) 2" sq.
(3) 2 1/4" sq.
(1) 2 1/4 x 2 1/2"
(1) 2 3/4 x 5 1/4"

Fabric B (mountain):
(3) 1" sq. (~)
(1) 1 x 1 1/4" (>)
(1) 1 1/4" sq. (+)
(1) 2 x 2 3/4"
(1) 2 1/4 x 2 3/4"
(1) 3 3/4 x 4 1/4"

Fabric C (truck):
(2) 1" sq. (~)
(1) 1 1/4" sq. (+)
(1) 1 1/4 x 2 3/4"
(1) 1 3/4 x 2"
(1) 2 1/4 x 3 1/4"
(1) 2 3/4 x 3 1/4"

Fabric D (tires):
(4) 1" sq. (~)
(4) 1 x 2"

Fabric E (wheels):
(2) 1" sq. (~)

--Match the symbols (+,> etc.) in the cutting instructions with the symbols in the assembly diagram.

Using the simple corner flip method illustrated in the video above, and fabrics and sizes indicated on the unit, make the following corner flip units. Note the video shows double upper corners, but these units' corner flips vary.


Once you've completed the above corner flip units, assemble block as shown below using SCANT quarter inch seams.

You'll have an 8 1/2" sq. off road scrappy truck quilt block. (8" when finished in quilt.)

I hope you enjoy this one. Thanks for dropping in for a visit. I'll be back soon. Happy Stitching! 


P.S. I love to see blocks and quilts that are made with any of my patterns. If you make any and post on social media, please come find me in any of the places listed below, and tag me so I can see! :) If you're on YouTube, check out the short musical video tutorials of some of these blocks. I'm hoping they might inspire kids, or anyone really, to learn to sew. :) Plus, they're just fun to do.


I'm keeping all of these blocks organized on the National Days quilt blocks page *HERE*if you're looking for any of the other 100+ blocks I've posted so far. Getting closer to my goal of 144 blocks! If you know someone who loves MinecraftPokemon, and or Harry Potter, check out these free sew alongs, too! :) And if you're looking for any of my print patterns, or other fun quilty gifts, check out my Etsy shop here. Or my new shop right here on my website *HERE*. I'm still getting it up to speed and adding more to it.. it's a work in progress. Be back soon!
