The Block Can Be Used Many Ways!

This darling little pieced bike evokes memories of carefree sunny days with a breeze fluttering through your hair. Finish the block off for a sweet mini quilt or incorporate it into a larger project.

The block is part of the Snapshots Quilt Along presented by The Fat Quarter Shop in 2015 (learn more here) and was designed by Bonnie and Camille. The other blocks in the quilt are wonderful too, but there’s something extra special about the bike.

The block is intricately pieced, making it more challenging than some. However, it’s just a series of basic units sewn together to create the design. Take your time and enjoy the process.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article).
