Default Ideas needed for childs John Deere quilt, blue

I am a fairly new quilter. Would like ideas on how to make a childs quilt using the blue
John Deere treactor material. It has 3 different large ( 8x10" ) tractors and others.
I also have the yellow and green plaid with the tractors , the yellow with the small tractors and another yellow with slightly larger tractors on it. Definitely want to use at least 3 of the large tractors.
I cannot come up with a way that does not look "messy". thanks. this is my 2nd post, but I have been veiwing this site for a few years and love it. You have given me many ideas, Thanks

While they are not John Deere its a cute pattern to use large panel blocks. A friend of mine just made the 3rd quilt on the page and it came out super cute never would have guessed it was a panel to start. I am going to be making something close to it but with a fairy panel I got a while back that is Michael Miller.

Happy Quilting

I did one many years ago and used yo yo's for the wheels. It came out really cute.

Framing the tractor blocks with a solid color would help to slow down the other fabrics.
