Quilting Quickly: Patterns, Techniques & Tips »
InstructionsI added firetruck backing because Dad is a fireman, I cut some trucks out of the extra fabric and machine embroidered them on the front of the quilt for interest.
Type of item: Functional
Cotton layer cakes, cotton jelly rolls, cotten flannel backing
What was your inspiration?
The "boy" who used to live next door always dug my car out, shoveled my driveway, and helped me in many ways over the years. He now is a volunteer fireman and has a new baby boy. I wanted something to honor the dad and be fun far a baby so I found a nice truck fabric for the backing and accents on the front.
What are you most proud of?
I finally finished it and baby is only 3..5 months old.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It would be better probably to not mix regular cotton and flannel -I ended up with wrinkles in the back.
