Block Rock’n Week 2 – Zeppelin

by Julie Hirt

Happy Friday!   I’m so ready for the weekend, aren’t you?  I’ve been busy all week and haven’t had time to sew anything.  That just makes me super crabby.  Luckily I had this block all ready to go.  I was wanting to redo it with different fabrics, but this is what you get!

Every Friday for  12 weeks I’ll be posting a free foundation / paper piecing block template.  The block names will be named after bands, singers or maybe even a song title.  Week two is the Zeppelin.



Block Rock’n just wouldn’t be much fun without some tunes.  Prep your ears for some fantasticalness.

Dang it… I’m going to have post two songs.

Gack. #sorrynotsorry.  I know this is a quilt post, but I just love this band.  There’s no way I have a favorite Zeppelin song, I truly enjoy so many of them.  Do you have a favorite?

Back to the block!  The Zeppelin is a little tricky to print.  You’ll need to print it on LEGAL SIZE paper –or– you can print it on letter size, you’ll just need to tape it together.   The PDF has an option for each.

Due to changes within a Craftsy, I am moving the patterns to Etsy. 
Buy the entire series of 12 blocks for $5 or each block for $1.  

Download HERE

Feel free to share within sewing groups if you use this pattern as your Bee block!
It does NOT need to be purchased multiple times. Same with the series purchase.

*be sure to actually download the PDF and open with Adobe, it looks a little funky in the browser but displays fine once it’s saved on your computer.

There are so many effects you can have with this block just by changing up the colors.  I’ll definitely be making another one with fading colors.  I would love to see your block if you make one!



Have a blog? Grab a button and share the fun – this is a free series! Code is here.



Get to sewing!  And do yourself a favor, rock out to some Zeppelin while you do it. I can’t help myself, I have to post one more.

Bad. Ass. I think I was born a generation too late.
