Summer Series Fab Four: Wheels On The Bus

Go round and round… got’cha singing don’t I? Can’t help but smile as I love thinking about our granddaughter breaking out into what we call her “dance party” whenever she hears her favorite songs – and as a 22-month-old toddler, that’s a long list of songs and a lot of joyful dancing!

Wheels On The Bus is a great weekend project to become familiar with not only the Star 60® tool from Deb Tucker’s Studio Design, but The Quilt Rambler’s way of putting squares inside of equilateral triangles.

Perfect to dress up your table, outdoor picnic, special family holiday and quick enough to make for those last-minute gifts! Its not too soon to start thinking about holiday gift giving!

I like to use ByAnnie’s Soft and Stable® instead of batting – there’s just a bit more cushioning and stability which helps when balancing plates full of tasty morsels – and as a bonus, it washes nicely too!

I can just imagine doing a little fussy cutting for those squares….in fact, my pattern tester Lisa Williams added embroidered dragonflies to her sample. Appliqué would also be nice! Lots of possibilities!

Naturally, Lisa went shopping locally for Island Batik fabric for her sample!

Of course, you may find other uses for Wheels On The Bus Table Runner & Placemats, our granddaughter thought they made a great floor mat (grin).

The trick to matching up points is in the proper tools (Studio 180 Design of course) combined with the detailed instructions and illustrations in my 12-page full color pattern Wheels On The Bus, available in both print and digital PDF download formats.

This is Karen Overton, The Quilt Rambler, hoping you will add Wheels On The Bus to your quilting to do list! (I can hear you humming!)

Stay tuned, as tomorrow I share “the rest of the story” with details of Whirly Wheels, pattern number 3 in the Summer Series Fab Four.
