QM’s 100 Blocks Vol. 7: Bus Stop block #696

Do you have your copy of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 7 yet? If not, maybe this cute block will entice you to pick up a copy. It’s called “Bus Stop” and is the next vehicle in my fleet (click here to see my Rescue No. 1 block from Volume 6). It’s made using scraps and sews together very quickly.

When I design a block like this, I use Google images to search for examples. It helps me with colors, proportions and details. I did the same thing for Rescue No. 1 in Vol. 6 and when we design our Patch Pals.

I’ll be doing a new image search very soon as I get ready to design my block for Volume 8 – coming in mid-November. Be sure to stay tuned.
