Project

Hot Rods and Roads!

What are you most proud of? I really love the colour combination and that this is a multi-functional quilt - can keep you warm and be used to drive your matchbox cars around on! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to start, keep the seam ripper handy and once again - don't procrastinate so you have to stay up till 4am to finish it before his birthday party :)

Q&A with VicMansfield

Jenya asked:
4 am - dedication ;) This one would have to be my fav :) How did you make lines on the roads?
VicMansfield answered:
I just used an embroidery yarn and hand stitched them - that was what I was doing till 4am, took way longer than I thought it would! :)
