The past four weeks have found us taking a road trip, deciding which way to go, riding up and away in a hot air balloon, and climbing a mountain. Now it’s time to put this quilt to rest.

Finishing the Top

While it’s not necessary to have a finished quilt top to enter the Grand Prize, you might enjoy making your blocks into one anyway using my large suitcase block called My Bags are Packed; I’m Ready to Go

Use the coupon code FREEFORME to get the pattern free by clicking below. You will be directed to my pattern shop and will be asked to leave your email address so the pattern can be emailed to you. Right below the email address box is the question if you have a coupon. Click the blue Add Coupon link and put in the coupon code FREEFORME. Your pattern will be emailed to you immediately or you can also click the link that comes up right away and download the pdf. If you are having difficulties, see this post I wrote for help with common problems with downloading and you can always email me kthurn@bektel.com.

You’ll get the directions for the 26 1/2″ square suitcase block called My Bags are Packed; I’m Ready to Go.

I’ve also included setting instructions for a 58″ square quilt using 12 blocks or make 4 extra blocks for a 58″ x 72″ quilt. I already made an extra Cityscape earlier as well as two extra car blocks. Both of those patterns are great for making additional blocks. I couldn’t resist making one more car block.

 The suitcase block is sized to be used with 12 1/2″ unfinished blocks with a 2 1/2″ sashing and 2 1/2″ square cornerstones. Borders are optional but can increase the size if you want it larger. I’ll be adding 4 inch borders made of the cornerstone fabric.

As usual, I have the pattern loaded with lots of ideas for embellishments.

    A lot of hard work went into your block. Am I old if I remember that song Leaving on a Jet Plane?
    This block and title are both appropriate for my current job. Before the pandemic, I traveled all over the state. I had a suitcase with essential items always ready. I am now safe and secure working splitting the time between office and home office (dining room table with a great view). I love to travel and miss in person meetings and assistance. I always loved to see your travel photos and blogs.
