    Little girl and Big trucks

    Hi im new here and im trying to find some fabric that is kind of girly that have Semi trucks (with or without the trailer), or just trucks in general. She is 2, a lil bit girly, and absolutely loves big trucks! Her birthday cake this year had a purple hot wheels truck on it, and she loved it. But my mom and i are going to be making her a new quilt and bed set this year and really want to find some fabric that she would love. i found some pink fabric with construction trucks at Walmart but i am still wanting to find more of a variety. Thanks for your help.

    You might see about having some blocks embroidered by machine the colors you want. This is a great to personalize her quilt

    How about paper piecing some truck blocks in feminine colors?

    Welcome from Southern CA. There are alot of sites out there that have fabric, try a google search and I am sure you will be able to find alot of fabric that will be what you are looking for.

    How about looking for coloring books with trucks, using the simple designs for applique? FatCatPatterns has a few trucks for applique too. This sounds like so much fun, please show us what it looks like when you're done.

    Here is the link for the pattern vondae mentioned. The link in her post is off by one letter---pambonodesigns.

    I have a BIL that has driven these things for 50 years and it would be a great quilt for him...
