As we speak /read the testers are hard at work trying out the “Chugging Along” pattern. I have sent out the paper piecing patterns for the different blocks to “roam the world”. By the middle of February the results will come in and I can show you all of the wonderful work of the fabulous testers!!!
Of course I tested the blocks too. And I just could not wait to show you my results!
( It is evening here, so my pictures are kind of blurry. I had to tweak some pictures in Photoshop to make them presentable)
The whole set (so far… no promisses I will stop designing new blocks to add! 🙂 )
The coal-car and the passenger’s car:
The freight car of course at the end of the train!
The train is rolling into the station…
… Don’t forget to load some water!
I used a scrap of fabric with bicycles for the “clock” on the station building. I will add some embroidery saying “Station” (DUH!) on the dark brown where it now says “ipatchandquilt”. I will also try to make the clock look like a clock, ha ha!
I just had to design some trees! I have another set drawn up on the computer, but it is not complete yet.
I wanted to show you the wheel of the different train cars. I used several scraps of “Comma” by Moda that were left over from my Christmas stockings .
I have plans for some more blocks like another set of trees and a railroad crossing and such.
Would you like to play with these blocks too? You could receive the complete set FOR FREE!!!
Just leave a comment with great ideas for blocks to add this pattern set. The best comment will receive the whole set of blocks once the patterns is released in the middle of February!!! Please leave your email in the comment if you are a no-reply blogger!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
