A View of My Quilt Life

Trucks Top

I have a top finish! 

The Trucks Quilt is a top! It turned out okay - not exactly what I had pictured in my mind but I think it will be loved by a little guy just the same.   

This top took 3 yards of the roadway fabric (with some bits left over) and could have used another two more yards to change the layout to something more what I envisioned.  This is about half the amount of total trimmings from the space between the roads. 

I have learned that I really don't like working with large printed blocks. Or maybe I need to stop thinking I don't like them when I am faced with them.  Something to think about.

More importantly right now, I need to get this layered and quilted! And then wrestle with the dinosaur quilt layout.

  1. It looks like something a little guy would love! And he can't be disappointed, as he never saw what you envisaged. He will just accept it for what it is, a fun quilt that can also be played on with toy cars.
