If you are new to the series, on the first of each month, I will be releasing a new Vintage Truck of the Month. Each month’s truck will be carrying a fun new surprise in the back, along with the month abbreviation on the bottom. The blocks are all traditionally pieced and finish at 20″ x 24″. While some blocks may have several smaller pieces, they aren’t too difficult at all! And they are a perfect way to use up your scraps because each block can be totally different!
I plan to use them to decorate my sewing room, so I will change them out monthly just like you do a calendar. Because of this, I am basting, quilting, and binding them as individual blocks. But you can always save them up and sew them into a quilt when you are done as well! I can’t wait to get started, so without further ado, here is the block for August!

I used scraps from my Sweetwater Christmas stash for this block. I used a combination of The Christmas Card, Holly’s Tree Farm, and Red Barn Christmas. This pattern features my popular Vintage Truck carrying a cute little tree and gift in the back! And of course our D-E-C letters at the bottom for December.
I did a traditional straight-line quilt pattern on this block and I think it just turned out so cute! I used my Modern American Vintage Hera Marker to mark lines before I quilted so everything stayed nice and straight. I also chose a fun gingham binding from the Sweetwater Red Barn Christmas line for Moda.
Did I mention these blocks are so fast to put together too? It just took me one afternoon to complete this block, and now I can hang in my sewing room all month long!
I hope you will join me in sewing my Vintage Truck of the Month blocks and I can’t wait to see what you all make! You can see all of the Vintage Truck of the Month blocks that are released so far, in my shop!
