QA #21 quilting the modern quilt

Working on my Modern Quilt and it's almost done....

There are just a few more sections to finish, but almost completed and ready for binding :)  This quilt will go on one of the bunk beds in the guest room until our next picnic with our grandsons. 
I lined up the blocks so that the light colors are connected for a roadway for cars and trucks; the echoed Zen string created a space perfect for matchbox cars!  

I have included all 5 of our quilt along stitches, and then quilted a few others!  I drew in thread some cars, placing one coming out of the start gate, and one about to cross over the finish line, just in front of the flags!

Thanks Leah, it was fun!  I know grandpapa and the boys will enjoy this one!


  1. I'm sure the "boys" will have a lot of fun with this quilt! Such a clever way to incorporate their love of cars.

  2. OMG! I love the cars racing through your design! It's perfect with zippling!

  3. It is so much fun to see your bonus work. Great quilt for the grandsons!

  4. Too Cool! what a great idea! The cars are great - I think I need to stalk the coloring book isles to get some ideas!

  5. A+

    What a fun way to customize the assignment!
