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.

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.

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!
