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.

Download Block Rockn – Zeppelin
*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!

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.

  1. HEY JULIE, YOU ARE SO TALENTED. AND GOOD MUSIC TRANSCENDS GENERATIONS. I AM STARTING A FRIDAY – FROM MY FAVORITE BLOGS- POST AND WOULD LIKE TO FEATURE YOUR BLOG AT TIMES. MAY I HAVE YOUR PERMISSION TO DO SO? THANKS, AND ROCK ON!

  2. FYI: For some reason when I try to print the PDF the second page has a large block covering the paper pieces.

  3. Oh. My. Goodness. This is great! It’s just nice to meet another quilter who shares my affinity for classic rock-culture. I don’t know if I will do these blocks right away, but I put the button on my blog to share the Zeppelin awesomeness!

  4. I am a massive fan of Zeppelin and like you I couldn’t name my fave song…. it changes form day to day and I listen to them and Pink Floyd pretty much every day. Though Kamshir and No Quarter are todays.
    I love this block as well, I think I’ll have to have a go at that one and follow your blog to see what else is happening.

  5. Considering Led Zeppelin was playing during some of the – ah-hem- defining moments of my life, there is no way I could pick just one song either. But Kashmir, No Quarter, and the Zep version of Rock ‘N Roll (that I belted at many a nightclub back in the cover band days) still get the love to this day.

    Good memories and thanks for the freebie pattern!
