Starting to come together


I've still got ten more to make, but I'm taking a break to work on other projects. Before I do though, I wanted to get an idea of how the quilt as a whole will come together. I blanket stiched in black around the tires, which made them appear to have tread - cool! I made five blocks into 12.5 inch blocks to see how they will look together in the final quilt. I think it's going to be cute.


Next up, quilting my jewel toned string quilt.

This is wonderful! It's paper pieced?

Thanks! Suzanne - no they are mostly just pieced improv. I have used paper piecing for a couple of shapes though, like the barrel of the cement mixer. The rest is free style.
