    54-40 or fight show quilt

    In the trucking industry, the organization that fights for driver's rights is OOIDA. (Owner Operator's Independent Driver's Association). They have a show truck that tours the country, Spirit of America. I built this quilt especially for this truck. It didn't take that long to build the top, but it took 18 hours to quilt it. It will make it's debut at the world's largest truck show this month in Louisville, KY.

    Great job quilting this. I think it would have taken me longer than 18 hours with all the ruler work and filled checkerboard

    Beautiful quilt and quilting. I so admire anyone who doesn't quilt in the meander all over like I do. It really adds so much to the quilt.

    You made a great quilt using patriotic colors. I am certain that many truckers will be very impressed with your workmanship.

    I am trying to find a word that hasn't been used and I can't seem to come up with anything new. So ditto to what has been said. This is a wonderful quilt. Your quilting brings it to another level. BrendaK
