W is for Wagon Tracks

This month I'm participating in A to Z Challenge, where 100's of bloggers around the world challenge themselves to write every day for the month of April, working their way through the alphabet.  I'm sewing a patchwork block for each letter of the alphabet. Each day I will share that block and a little about the block and direct you to where you can find a tutorial for that block on the Web.

The pattern for today is Wagon Tracks and can be found here on Quilter's Cache. Its a traditional block that isn't really that special as an individual block

However when you see a whole quilt made from the block it really comes into its own. Its rather striking I think you will agree


  1. Isn't it about looking holistically?:) looks like the pattern is like that.

    1. some blocks shine on their own and others need to be supported by others similar to themselves before their true value is able to show through

  2. Why the name, Wagon Track? Is it because of some track or road like pattern... say may be for a big farm vehicle?
    Interesting pattern!

  3. The names of blocks often leave me scratching my head - not sure why this is called wagon tracks - but yes probably because something about the pattern formed when the block is repeated.

  4. I love a block that makes the whole quilt look elegant.

  5. And I really like the different shades of blue in your example.
