One Stoplight Town | A free pattern!

Pooches & Pickups

A few months ago, designer Laurie Wisbrun sent me a bundle of half-yard cuts of her adorable new line, Pooches & Pickups for Robert Kaufman fabrics. I immediately fell in love with the vibrant primary colors of the line and the versatile prints that are appropriate for little and big boys alike!

Pooches & Pickups

I was inspired to design and make an original quilt pattern, and today I'm making the pattern available for all of my wonderful readers! It's a quick and easy-to-assemble pattern, with nice big blocks to show off the line's large-scale prints.

The retro vibe of the vintage pick-up trucks and the big dogs riding in the back called to mind summer afternoons, drive-in movies, old school gas pumps, and the very best laid-back country music, all of which combined to inspire the name of my pattern: One Stoplight Town.

One Stoplight Town

I selected several shades of Kona cotton solid fabrics to complement the prints, and incorporated them into the design.

I also have the perfect recipient for this quilt in mind. A childhood friend of mine and her husband had their first baby -- a boy -- a little over a year ago. I've long been wanting to make a quilt especially for baby Mason, but lacked both the time and the perfect selection of boy-friendly prints that could grow with him. I'm glad I waited, because Pooches & Pickups is the perfect match!

One Stoplight Town

If you make One Stoplight Town, I'd love to see it! Please send me a photo or a link to your blog or Flickr stream.

Pooches & Pickups

And Laurie was generous enough to send an extra fat quarter bundle of Pooches & Pickups for a lucky Quilt Dad reader. Want a chance to win? Simply leave a comment on this post and let me know another fabric combination that you think would really bring One Stoplight Town to life!

I'll randomly select a winner next Friday, 11/4. Good luck!

  3. Just got some Ruby so I am going to say that. Maybe with the gray for the strips.

  4. I think circles would show this fabric well too. But love your pattern!

  5. I was thinking some solids (WHiTE! Who am I kidding, I pair white with everything!!) or a nice shade of blue!

    ReplyDelete
  6. All the lines make me want to add some curves in some fashion. The first thing that came to mind were some great metro living dots in brown - chocolate brown! And I love your pattern. Nice work. Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I think this pattern would work with ANY line of fabric but right now I am thinking Christmas so what about Ready Set Snow? Oooo or Ghastlies would look great in this quilt. I think I need to go shop now. thanks for a great pattern.

  8. I would love to see it with the Kaufman quilters linens. I would love to win that 'poochy' fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I am thinking Kona solids to showcase the adorable trucks and puppy dogs.

    ReplyDelete
  10. So Cute. I have lots of boy kids im my family. I would be great to make one of them this quilt. Thanks for sharing and for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  11. ohboy...I have been drooling over these fabrics for months! I am thinking solids! Thank you for the opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I have two girls, so I tend to think in 'girl' colours (even though my eldest is not a 'girly-girl' LOL). I'd love to make this up in Aneela Hooey's Little Apples - to remind me of my one stoplight town. :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. What a great pattern to show off fun prints. I'd love to see it in multi-colored polka dots and black.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Think a Kona solid would highlight the colors in the fabric. Thanks for the opportunity to enter. Robert, in northern Iowa.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Love it - nice boy friendly fabrics are hard to come by. I would love to see this pattern in one of Suzy Ultman's lines like Critter Community.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Thanks for the great pattern! I'd love to see it with fruit and vegetable prints ... it'd be like a farmers' market!

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Im thinking some fun polka dots in the coordinating colors from michael miller? haha probably wouldn't know till they were all in my hands though! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love this quilt! My 4yo has requested a quilt with dogs on it and these would be perfect. I think your pattern would be really cute made with Outfoxed!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I think some of David Butler's new and soon to be available Curious Nature would be fab with this. Or maybe some primary color polka dots or stripes. I hope I win, have liked this since it came out. Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm thinking some white solid. This would be adorable for my little guy!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Right now I am in love with the little apples line! How fun would that be! Love the show off of these beautiful prints!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I just finished a quilt top in Marine by Dan Stiles, but I think this pattern would be great for that line. Lot of large-scale (adorable) prints to show off!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Two bad it wasn't "Two Stoplight Town" then I could say " I live there!" I think this would look really neat with all solids. I might have to try it. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I think adding some Hometown for the "solids" would be fun. I love the dogs and trucks in this new line.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I would definitely incorporate some kind of gray, but I am kind of on a gray kick right now. It's so hard to find good designer quality boy fabric. This is a fabulous line!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I think I would add some black for the borders - just to frame it! Gorgeous fabrics!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I would add more solids to really show off the prints

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think this would be terrific with a big floral print-thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ooh Love this!! I was thinking maybe Solids or some small polka dots!

  30. I think this would be cute in the Hooty Hoot line by Riley Blake...lots of great graphics and colors to interest young eyes and hands! Fun pattern! Thanks for sharing!

  31. I think it would be a fun all solids quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I was just looking at getting some of that fabric yesterday! Simple but fun pattern. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I wonder what that quilt would look like all in red, yellow, and green. You know, like a real stoplight?

    ReplyDelete
  34. I would like to try this pattern in a variety of solids.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Those prints are so fun. I'm getting ready to have our first son so I'd love to win. I think that some large geometric prints with some more solids mixed in would give this pattern a fun grown up and modern feel.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Love the fabric and the pattern. Thanks for the chance to win some.

  37. Polka dots. Definitely polka dots!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I LOVE this fabric . I could see the woven haze stripe from Kaffe in the pine colorway going well with this . Also your recent Sleeping Beauty line of fabric comes to mind . I LOVED the leaf pattern in that line . Have to get my hands on some of that .

    ReplyDelete
  39. I think it would be great with Outfoxed.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I think Urban Zoology would be fun with this pattern

    ReplyDelete
  41. I think a cool combination of geometrics, in different scales would look really great with your pattern, probably with solids thrown in so it doesn't get overwhelming. :)

    Nice pattern, thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I think this would look great with Dr. Seuss or comic book character fabric lines.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Cute pattern! I'd love to see it done in a soft palette of neutral solids with only the thin strips in prints. Or in Too Muchery.

    ReplyDelete
  44. urban zoology! i think the bold prints and colors would really work well with your very linear (totally cool) pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Great job - great vision for this larger scale print. Another larger scale might be wrenly - I love those birdies, but not sure I want to cut them up. Or Tula Pink's collections - sometimes it is fun to chop up and hide the design, but sometimes you want to remember there's really a snail in that scallop. Actually, lots of little boy prints (the Timeless treasures shipyard prints) would be good here - they want to see the vehicles!

    ReplyDelete
  46. What a great way to highlight that adorable fabric. I think I need to get some of that red truck fabric as hubby drives a red truck!:)

    I have some lovely grey and yellow fabrics in my stash...some with some really big prints...this pattern would really let them shine!;)

    ReplyDelete
  47. I would try this pattern with some Caleb Gray Robot Factory and some solids for extra boy fun and added punch! The larger pieces are great for some novelty fabric. It's wonderful to have a pattern that shows off the fun fabric I'm always stocking up on! Don't tell!

    ReplyDelete
  48. That pattern is super cute! If I was working with Laurie's fabrics it would need to be my all time fave Tufted tweets other than that the size of the blocks lend themselves really well to the Echino Fall 2011 line.

    ReplyDelete
  49. a combination of solids with a polka dot binding would show case thess fun fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I would definitely add more solids, in the primary colors of the Pooches fabric. Really cute stuff, I'm going to have to track some of that down for my young lad.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Great pattern and love that fabric! I think this pattern would be lovely with Little Apples!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I have two grandsons who would love these fabrics! I like the gray/blue/green combination and would add a stripe, and a "green light" block to your darling quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  53. That´s a really simple pattern made with such pretty fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  54. What a great pattern. I could easily see this in so many different fabrics. If I was making a girl version, I think that Amelia and some complementary solids would be awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I can see this in Ruby with several solids to set them off. Thanks for the pattern, Iam anxious to try it.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I think appliqued stoplights with circles of Kona red, yellow and green would be great in this quilt. Thanks for the pattern and giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I was actually thinking of taking it the girly direction and using florals with a solid green for the small strips, like grass or leaves, but then I saw someone else's post about red, yellow and green and thought that was super cute!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Great quilt. It shows off the fabric so well. I'm thinking for a girl maybe some Heather Bailey fabrics. I think it could show off some of her larger floral prints really well. Again, your work is wonderful. I love little boy prints.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I am going to join the white group. I think it would accent the fabric and showcase the designer.

    ReplyDelete
  60. This reminds me a bit of that brain-bender puzzle called Jacob's Ladder . . . so some awesome bright solids paired with a wood grain. Thanks for sharing the pattern and the fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Loved your quilt! I think it would look nice using a variety of florals as well.

    ReplyDelete
  62. How about Sweet Beginnings by Henry Glass? Anything bright and fun. Thanks for a chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Thanks John, that is so fun! I bet a bunch of Kaffe Ikats/stripes with shots as the vertical bars would look very different, but also give it a cool guy-vibe! There's tons of awesome new robot fabric out now, too which would be fun.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Beautiful quilt! I'm thinking scrapy, scrapy. Although, I'm sure my matchy side would try to interfere.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Love it! It might be fun to try it in all Kona Solids.....hmmmmmm

    ReplyDelete
  66. I'll go with Outfoxed, because, um, I'm absolutely in love with it right now! :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. What a fun quilt for a little guy! It would also look great with the Boys At Work line :)
    THANKS for the chance at winning some of this!

  68. I think this would be beautiful in the soft prints of Rouenneries - the reds and greys! It would give the pattern a whole different look.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Hmm mm... Maybe the new Amy Butler fabrics? Yum! Fun pattern, John!

    ReplyDelete
  70. I would love to make this quilt in primary colors with stripes and polka dots. Thanks for the giveaway!

  71. I think this pattern is gorgeous! It doesn't need to be just for boys. I would like to see it in Happy Mochi Yum Yum with coordinating Kona solids in turquoise, pink, and yellow. Gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I think this would look great with a zebra print, black and any bright solid pink, turquoise, lime green, red etc. Thanks for the giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  73. I'm a big fan of solids, I think it would look so modern like that. Also, Alphabet Soup-that would be fun!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I think it would look great in the new Outfoxed prints I have coming!

    ReplyDelete
  75. This would be great with castle peeps!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I don't know that I have a specific suggestion but there are so many lines out there now that have bigger prints to show off I think you have lots of options. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I was also thinking of Happy Mochi Yum Yum, but keeping all those little boys in mind I think Bella Lu Studio's Building Up collection, or Caleb Gray's Robot Factory would work well.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I think it's perfect just like you've got it!

    ReplyDelete
  79. nice, thanks for the pattern and the chance to win! i think 'wheels' by Riley Blake would be adorable if you could get your hands on it :)

    ReplyDelete
  80. Thanks for sharing your pattern! I think it would be neat to see a quilt with your pattern using Meet The Gang. :)

    ReplyDelete
  81. I love the simplicity John! I would love to see this done in either blues with black bars or neutral tans and white to look like a basket!

    Not that this would improve upon this perfect gem!

    ReplyDelete
  82. This is such a beautiful quilt anything would look fantastic!! Gorgeous!
    Paulette

    ReplyDelete
  83. This is the perfect pattern for some fabric I have!! Thanks!
    And your post reminded me I haven't visited Laurie's etsy shop in awhile....so I went over and bought some new fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  84. I agree there aren't a lot of boy fabrics so I'm thinking Ruby or some of the bright, flowery lines would be darling. That's a cute quilt and really fun for a little guy. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  85. oOH, I would love to win some of this great fabric to make something for my 1 yr old! I think some robots and dots would be a cool combo too :)

    ReplyDelete
  86. I'm a big fan of Bonnie Hunter, so I think your pattern would look great in plaids and stripes (old shirts from the thriftstore) combined with some solid white.

    ReplyDelete

  88. I dont know Fabrics to say what would go well with it.

    but I agree that large scale prints would do well.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Ohhh... terrain. Totally. I love that the pieces are big enough to allow whatever fabric is chosen to actually stand out. I love intricate quilts, but some fabrics are just too gorgeous to chop up so small!

    ReplyDelete
  90. i really like the way that there's a natural line to all of the prints and you've inserted the kona lines in the other direction. i think tula pink's prince charming prints have the same sort of "natural line" feel to them with the frogs and the raindrops.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I'm thinking Ruby, but there are a lot of great options!

    ReplyDelete
  92. I think this would be really fun in solids with polka dots for the thin strips.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I think using some dark solid fabrics would be nice.
    I would love to win this. I am still trying to find the perfect fabric for my best friend's baby boy due in Jan. This would be awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I think Amy Ellis's Blogger's Choice would be good for a girl. Thanks so much for the pattern. Kathie L in Allentown

    ReplyDelete
  95. Wonderful pattern. And very cute fabric. I can also see this pattern in Sherbet Pips by Aneela Hoey, or even something Christmassy like The 12 Days of Christmas by Kate Spain. Thanks for a great giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  96. In the UK we don't have all these gorgeous fabrics you do and I'm quite new to quilting and fabric so don't know names! I love bright funky colours though

    ReplyDelete
  97. Nice quilt! And gorgeous fabric! As a mom of 2 little boys, I'm always on the hunt for boyish prints - these are really perfect. Hope, I'll win the FQs ;o) Thanks for hosting yet another giveaway!!!

    ReplyDelete
  98. I agree with a lot of other comments above- Outfoxed would be great. Peeps would be cool, too. Either the castle or 1001 variety. akmajor (at) gmail (dot) com

    ReplyDelete
  99. What about Echino with all the cars? It'd be a different take but still really cool. I love Echino.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Mmmm...Children at Play. One for a boy. One for a girl. One for me... :) LOVE that line!

    ReplyDelete
  101. What a fun pattern! I think it would great just using a bunch of novelty prints and solids.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I think I'd want to try the Michael Miller spots/dots/dashes from his Sally, Dick, and Jane line. Maybe with a few characters thrown in for fun.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Great fabric. I'd love a chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I have been collecting feedsack prints and think this could be an interesting pattern for them.

    ReplyDelete
  105. I like the idea of using novelty prints.

    ReplyDelete
  106. across the pond would be lovely for the same reasons these work- larger prints that deserve to be showcased, and nice bold colors.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I like the solids with it; what about Sarah Jane's Children at Play? Or even Going Coastal? I like the pattern. I've been looking for a good pattern to make for my boys!

    ReplyDelete
  108. I can think of two fabulous lines that would look great with this pattern: "Secret Garden" by Sandi Henderson and "Silent Film" by Jenean Morrison.

    I LOVE this fabric! I have 4 boys, and many more nephews, and finding boyish fabrics (that are not camo!!) are so hard to find. I'm so excited!! Thank you, John, for this opportunity to win this!

    ReplyDelete
  109. i think alexander henry has some great cars fabrics...would look great in this pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I think black, whites and grays would look awesome in the one stoplight town pattern. I've been searching for months for the perfect line of cars for my little boys "big boy bed"! Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  111. I reckon this would look great with pretty much any fabric combo - always the sign of a great pattern - but for now I'd say dots & spots, lots of them in various colours. Thanks for a great giveaway & a fab pattern too!

    ReplyDelete
  112. I admit, I'm just thinking Kona Solids - although, really, anything with a 'big print' would probably do well with the One Stoplight Town pattern.

    Silent Cinema? Valley of the Kings? Hm. Maybe the 'Australiana' collection by Robert Kaufman?

    Thanks for the giveaway - I know a couple of boys who'd love a quilt made from that collection! :)

    ReplyDelete
  113. A white on black print, a black on white print and a red for the stripe would look pretty cool for an adult, or a pink, green and purple for a little girl.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I'd go with all solids! Then you could play with texture on the quilting - each block a different FMQ pattern?

    ReplyDelete
  115. I see another commenter said Outfoxed. That would be my choice, too! This pattern would be so cute used with that fabric line.

    ReplyDelete
  116. When I read your post title, I thought that you had borrowed one of my comments. I live near a one stoplight town (the only stoplight in the county). When my family first moved here, that stoplight was upside down and weekend night fun was sitting at the stoplight to see if anyone drove by... and my brother's dog always rides in the back of his pickup. So, want to win!
    BTW, Robot Factory or Superhero (think that's the name) would be great boy's fabrics for your pattern. I love it! Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  117. I have 4 boys and I think the Moda Robots line would be cute to use for this :)

    ReplyDelete
  118. Either of the Lizzy House Peeps lines would be cool to see...

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  119. I think reds complement any fabric with a lot of different colours. a Moda red would look wonderful with this line.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Maybe I'm just hungry, but I think a chocolate, raspberry and vanilla mix would be great.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Personally, I think One Stop Town would look great with your first Blogger's Choice Bundle for Fat Quarter Shop: http://www.quiltdad.com/2011/08/my-bloggers-choice-fat-quarter-bundle.html

    ReplyDelete
  122. Any Christmas fabric, would be fabulous

    ReplyDelete
  123. I have found the cutest I spy quilt pattern that this fabric would work wonders with. That is my goal, is to collect as many images as I can to work into that quilt for kids.

    ReplyDelete
  124. I'd use it with a plain cotton I think so that the dog prints can do the talking; both my boys desperately want a dog and this way they could have one that won't chew their shoes!

    ReplyDelete
  125. I think Little Apples would be great also. I also have in mind Ruby and Lizzy House Peeps.

    ReplyDelete
  126. I'd love to see it done in Windham's Rocky and Bullwinkle!

    ReplyDelete
  127. Great fabrics. I think I would do a log cabin type quilt with these. I like the solids with the prints.

    ReplyDelete
  128. I so love that fabric. I mean, really love that fabric. Very cute pattern, it really shows off the loveliness of prints.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I always LOVE that fabric!! That is a great pattern and thanks for sharing. BTW...I do love your fox fabric...and the pattern will do nicely!!

    ReplyDelete
  130. I love this fabric - I've had my eye on it for a while. I think lots of grays would be so cute with these prints. Specifically, Riley Blake's Alphabet Soup Circles in gray - I great match, I think. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  131. Hmmm... several people have put out robot lines recently - is it Alexander Henry that has the one that is very silver and 1960's looking? I think that would be perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  132. I would love to see this pattern in basic geometrics - dots, stripes, etc!

    ReplyDelete
  133. I think this would be gorgeous in Terrain with the stripes as coordinating solids ..... ooooooh!

    ReplyDelete
  134. Oooh this would work so well with a little boy quilt i"m working on. I think it would be great with a brown or blue polka dot

    enigmatic_15 at yahoo dot com

    ReplyDelete
  135. I think that it would look great in solids. But who knows? What a perfect boy's quilt though!

    ReplyDelete
  136. Cool prints!! Love these for a boy. My son would love these and it would be nice to see something other than skulls, which is another favorite of his!!

    ReplyDelete
  137. Very adorable pattern! I would love to see this with the Its A Jungle line or something similar? Cute, cute!

    ReplyDelete
  138. These fabrics are beautiful! And your pattern is adorable. I would definitely go with solids to pair with these particular beauties.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Love the fabric! I would pair it with some solids to keep the focus on the prints.

    ReplyDelete
  140. super super cute! I love anything with puppies. period.

    ReplyDelete
  141. I have a line of fabric from a couple of years ago that features rain, umbrellas and other big motifs. This would be a great pattern for those! (sorry, can't remember the name of the line)

    ReplyDelete
  142. I've been saving a set of fq's and some yardage from a robot themed fabric - Cogsmo from Cosmo Cricket, I think - that I think would be great with this pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Fabric is great, and so is your pattern. Good job!

    ReplyDelete
  144. Just found your blog. Love it!!! Would love to win this great fabric. I think it would look great with a solid Gray!

    ReplyDelete
  145. I'm thinking that fabric needs some SPOTS! Red spots, blue spots, green spots, and tan spots! Then we could name the doggies SPOTS! Cool fabric, cool pattern - thanks for the chance to win some.

    ReplyDelete
  146. Match that lime-give some punch! thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  147. I think it would look cool as a Christmas quilt in red and green!
    Thanks!

  148. This is such a great print. Adding solids or a great stripe would look good. Thanks for the pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  149. I think this pattern would look great in polka dots, both big & little dots. Moda's Dotty mixed with Essential Dots. Thanks for the pattern & the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  150. I have a collection of skin prints that would look fabulous with black. Thanks for the pattern and the chance to win the terrific fabric.
    BTW - I live in such a small town we have ZERO stoplights. LOL!!

  151. Fab quilt again, John. I think this'd look great with the Riley Blake range with the birds (don't know the exact name) but also with Countdown to Christmas for a seasonal quilt. Please, please, please let me win.......

    ReplyDelete
  152. I am working on a quilt with Hometown right now, and I think that would be most appropriate for "One Stoplight Town" I kinda miss the days where there were more one stoplight towns. I love this fabric and have thought of getting some for my grandson, but just haven't gotten to it yet. I'd love to win some though...here's hoping.

    ReplyDelete
  153. I'd love to win, new follower to your blog, saw from timeless star quilt competition link. I'm almost your neighbor, used to live in cary, now in the sticks of pittsboro! check out my blog and website :-) www.beaquilter.com

  154. I am a sucker for sports themed fabric and collect half yard pieces whenever I see them. Football, basketball, baseball, lacrosse...I am the mum of four boys and each of the boys is a sports fanatic. Our garage full of cleats, sticks, bats, and balls proves it! Thanks for the chance. smdecoste@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  155. Using the palette of Cosmo Cricket Circa with coordinating kona solids, then adding some of the Echino vehicle and dots prints might provide an interesting version of this very masculine quilt. However, I really do like the one you made with the glorious old pickup prints of the very talented Laurie, I'm grateful for your ideas and postings to help me make a quilt for one of my nephews but a quilt he might like! Thank-you.

    ReplyDelete
  156. the addition of red and aqua polka dots would look so great!

    ReplyDelete
  157. I'm thinkin' polka dots too! Great fabric--love her lines. Thanks for this chance to win some.

    ReplyDelete
  158. Red, Yellow, and Green solids??? like a stoplight? No, seriously, your pattern would be gorgeous with some neutrals (grey/taupe/black). I am a dog lover and adore the fabric! Please pick me Mr Random Number Generator.

    ReplyDelete
