The Road Trip Quilt

Tutorial coming soon! This one is in the shop.
PS. How cute is that fabric!??? Love it. You can find it here or here. You can also find it here at the Ribbon Retreat and they sell by the fat quarter and 1/4 yard! LOVE THAT because I rarely use up the whole 1/2 yard. And yes…the quilting was boring as heck…but well worth it. :)

    That is so cute. I have a bunch of fabric from that line and used this print to make a bib for my grandson's 2nd birthday. Adorable quilt.

    And thank you for the sandwich advice, not what I wanted to hear, but appreciated nonetheless:)

    What an adorable quilt. I really need to buy some of that fabric soon. I understand many places are running out of that already. I have a site where I buy my embroidery designs from that has digitized the vehicles and stuff from that line of fabric. Matching those designs with your quilt would be super cute.

    I, too, LOOOOVE straight-line quilting but it sure as heck is boooring. :) Adorable project!

    Love that fabric…great quilting. A great way to showcase that favorite fabric!

  36. jodi @ Pleasant Home July 13, 2010 at 5:09 pm #

    What a great quilt! Straight lines are boring as heck! No doubt about it. But yes you are totally right, totally worth it! ;o)

  37. Amy - Park City Girl July 14, 2010 at 1:59 am #

    My boy picks out that fabric each time we walk into the local quilt shop! Adorable :)

  38. Dree July 14, 2010 at 2:32 am #

    I love it! My boys would have gone nuts over that fabric when they were younger! The straight-line quilting is great with the wavy roads. I seem to be the only person who loves to do straight-line quilting. It is so magnificently mindless!

  39. Mary on Lake Pulaski July 14, 2010 at 4:18 am #

    Yup, got some wheels, will be doing the tutorial as soon as you're ready.

  40. Jeanette July 14, 2010 at 4:00 pm #

    Do you ever use the spray on adhesive for this type of quilting instead of basting with pins?

    Love this quilt!

  41. kersten July 15, 2010 at 2:21 am #

    LOVE the binding!

  42. Christine July 15, 2010 at 6:00 am #

    I love it! I can't wait for the tutorial.

  43. Rinachiyya July 15, 2010 at 1:28 pm #

    What a great quilt and what a happy quilt.
    It will be easy to make and no matching points nearly .I think the fabrics makes this quilt. Love it.

    I adore this quilt! I'd love to make something similar for my son — he's all about cars and trucks and anything that goes!
