Pieced Vehicles – Improv Style
Front End Loader Block
You will need a solid background fabric, a small piece for the window, a solid color for the bodyof the loader, and black fabric with white dots for the wheels. You will also be using fusible web.2.
Rough cut the pieces for the window, surrounding orange and tan strips (the background fabricin this case), a rectangle of orange for the body of the loader, a small orange rectangle, and anorange triangle. Have some extra background strips also ready to go. You’ll be piecing and
trimming repeatedly, so keeping a cutting mat and rotary cutter next to your sewing machinewill be helpful. I finger press as I go, but you could iron if you prefer.3.
Sew an orange strip to the top of the window.4.
Sew an orange strip on either side of the window, and then trim to ½ inch from the bluewindow.5.
Sew tan strips to the top and sides of the window unit.
Trim the bottom of the window unit straight across.7.
Sew tan rectangles to the top and bottom of an orange rectangle. This will be the the strip thatattaches the bucket of the loader to the body of the machine.8.
To make the bucket of the loader, sew a tan strip to the angled side of the triangle. I alsosewed a strip to cut off the bottom right corner of the triangle.
