Little Wonky Cars Quilt

It feels so good to have a quilt finished! This one is majorly cute, I’m in love with those little cars. It measures almost 36 in. by 47 in. I did some loopy quilting on this one, mostly just to try something new. For some reason my sewing machine decided to not go full speed while I was quilting, so I had to quilt it slower than usual. Luckily after some “choice” words and threatening to throw it over the balcony it decided to speed up a bit, but it still made me nervous. For as much as I use that poor machine I should probably go get it serviced more often than never. IMG_0561 That backing fabric makes me so happy! I put this one in the shop while I contemplate whether or not I should keep it. But after filling 5 of those giant silver tubs with quilts during moving I’ve decided I should probably try to cut back. Luckily this one wouldn’t take up that much space right? I say that about every single one I keep. That’s why I have tub(s) full. IMG_0571

    Perfect binding!
    Shh, I'm the same way with my machine. No service since I got it 4 years ago. I can't bear to part with it for that long.

    Incredibly adorable. I love the swirly quilting, and you've given me encouragement to quilt my Nine-patch top in all white, it looks great on this. But, damn you for making me all nostalgic for cute wee little boy things – mine are now old, old, men of 5 and 7!

    I stumbled on to your blog today and I love this quilt. How big are the large squares and how big are the small car blocks? What a darling idea!
