    Quilt design for my great-nephew

    My niece's son picked out this fabric called Big Red so I needed to come up with how to use it before ordering it. I found that there is a panel of the 6"x6" small tractors and the International Harvester logos. Each panel has 24 squares. I also found a panel with 4 large pictures and border pieces with the grass, sky, and tractors.

    Each small tractor panel has 8 red logos, 6 white logos, 6 pictures of one tractor and 4 each of two other tractors. This design uses all the logos and 4 each of the three small tractors. I decided to get two panels of the large tractors so that there is enough border strips to put on the top and bottom. I'll just give my niece the other 4 tractor pictures and she can frame them or make pillows.

    The red and the beige fabric are part of the collection and they have tractors on them. The blue/green/zig-zag stripe is also in the collection.

    Thanks. I think it's cute. I wanted the 6"x6" pieces around the edge but didn't know what to do to fill it in with. Then I saw the fences in the pictures!! I adjusted the whole quilt size so that the fences could be 6"x10" and it all fits the space. It won't be hard to do with a bias strip maker for the rails. Just sew them onto the beige and put a white piece on each end.

    Neat quilt plan! How old is your great nephew? This is a design that could be used for young or old.

    Great job of designing the quilt. My son is 52 years old and he would love that.
