Pieced Vehicles, Improv Style - Ambulance

I've had many questions about how I pieced the vehicles for this quilt. No, I didn't use paper piecing, and no, I didn't use a pattern. I'm not making a pattern either :). I used improvisational piecing to make them, which is a method. There are lot of great tutorials out there for houses and trees. I'll share a couple of tutes with you for various vehicles I included in my son's quilt.

Whitney, these are for you!

Today, the ambulance block.

This is awesome - thanks for sharing your technique! I had spent a few hours last year wondering how you put those blocks together... Great process!

Yeah! I am not sure if my skills are ready for this yet, but I am definitely filing this away. Thanks so much for sharing!
