Just a TRUCK quilt

This one also took a while.
I had this truck fabric for a long, long time, until one special boy, who is obsessed with trucks was turning 3 years old.

Quilt Front:

Simple enough. I wanted to carry the colors from the truck fabric, at the same time to make it seem that the trucks "move" through the quilt. The yellow represents road, blue represents the sky and green - trees.

Quilt Back:

The boy's name (No, his name isn't really "hide The Name) is appliqued on either side of the light, using satin stitch applique.

Pattern used: none
  • Unknown truck print stash fabric
  • Kona red
  • yellow and green, grey, blue solid from Connecting Threads
Quilting:  allover giant stipple

I did not have enough fabric leftover for a matching pillowcase, so I purchased a pillowcase and added a cuff with contrast piping.
