I saw this quilt on Allison's blog and liked it so much that I knew I had to make my own version of it. Hers is made from a fresher color palette, which I like, but I used what I had around here. I had previously purchased a FQ pack of Riley Blake's Wheels plus some yardage. That's mostly what this is.I added some solids and other prints that I had -- some things from It's a Hoot by Momo.
I was trying to show you the little car in the window, but if you look closely you can also see where my machine skipped stitches and I had to sew back over those spots again. You can't see it? Thicker stitching lines? I doubt the mama who got this will notice either. I keep being reminded that it's okay if my quilts aren't perfect.
On the back are the cars print from Riley Blake, some Quilter's Only in I don't know what color, and some muslin that I dyed orange with RIT dye that I bought at WalMart. It's not the most colorfast dye (as I'm learning), so it fades some. I need to invest in some better fabric dyes, but for now, I just use what's around.
