This quilt’s dimensions are 39 in. x 67 in. I decided to quilt it in a meandering quilting pattern with multicolored thread. I know, unoriginal, but I was nervous about trying other patterns. I thought about doing cars over the whole thing. I’ll have to try that on another one. I also thought about doing a different quilt pattern for every type of fabric, and then doing echo quilting INTO the automobiles, but I chickened out. Or, maybe I was just being true to myself. Who knows, but I love how it turned out.
I chose the grey fabric to bind the entire quilt. I thought orange, yellow, red, or the floral pattern on the VW bug would be too busy and bright, and I didn’t have enough of the purple or blue, which I thought would also be nice, so I went along with the grey.
Some of the blocks have pieces as small as 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch (final size).
My favorite automobile is probably the Front Loader. Especially the dirt. I don’t know why.
My son’s favorite automobile? Need you ask?
I used the “nursery thyme toile” fabric (the sky fabric) for the back.
