Bumper2Bumper – a car quilt
Or have you ever noticed how very few quilt patterns are geared toward boys?
I posted this photo below, of my completed blocks, to Instagram. And more than one person thought those were stacks of quilts on the top of the cars! That would make for a really cute idea. Talk about a Trunk Show!
Although I had toyed with the idea of using solids, I ended up choosing to use a lot of random prints from my stash – reds, blues, greens, yellows and oranges – and a few black and white and grey prints thrown in for interest.
The quilting is organic wavy lines using my walking foot. And plain white Gutermann thread both on top and in the bobbin. I chose to bind this little quilt in black – to match the wheels and to provide a strong frame.
The backing is from the Urban Artifacts collection by RJR Fabrics, which you can view here. I am simply in LOVE with this print! The colours, the dots, the flowers and the text. It is just such a fun print!
The pattern provides instructions for making the car blocks in two sizes.
