Q&A with Yukon Quilter

Yukon Quilter asked:
My grandson loves all cars and trucks and "diggers" so I designed this quilt for his first big bed. The 2 main colours of grey and green were based on his bedroom walls. (I ordered the Kona fabric from The Fat Quarter Shop in Texas! The colorful border fabric I found in a quilt shop in La Conner. The finished quilt was custom quilted in Whitehorse. Note the designed fire engines and the toot-toot, honk-honk words in the grey.
Yukon Quilter answered:
I can't seem to open the comment from 42431 below so I'm answering here. The original pattern was for a hand appliqued wall hanging on a 57 inch piece of white fabric. The name is Peak Hour and you can find it and many examples on the Internet, The original has colored circles in the border. I used fewer vehicles and machine appliqued them on 7 or 8-inch "road" strips. Much easier to manage. After each road was done I sewed them all together. I'd be interested to know if you found the pattern. I was overwhelmed how many examoles there were- and I kind of like mine!!
