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.
This month’s pattern is called Gas Station! Each month, I will be walking you through this quilt top step-by-step with tips, and thorough instructions and free templates. To pick up the full pattern GO HERE!
Remember when all gas stations were full service? You would not only get gas for just a few cents a gallon, but a nice service guy would wash your windows and check your oil for you! Too young to remember that? Seriously, it was the case! Those were the good old days.
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!
So how does this work?
Starting November 1, 2018, blocks are 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.
