Retro Flash was influenced by our time spent on Route 66 while traveling through the west. I love the old signage and the simpler times represented in mid century culture. Retro Flash brings together some of my favorite 50’s themes into one fun quilt. Be sure to go to the bottom of this post for a link to this month’s Free Block!
I had a ton of fun creating this block. Remember when there was intermission at the movies? Remember when there were drive ins? This one brings back so many fond memories.
Retro Flash was created with traditional applique, with touches of embroidery for embellishments. Of course, it can easily be done in fused applique or even with blended wool felt! See the bottom of the post for the link to this month’s free pattern!
So how does this work?
Starting November 1, 2018, blocks will be offered on the first of the month, with the last being offered on July 1, 2019. Each block will be available free to all Sitcom Readers until the end of that month.
