    Big Red Tractor coming along

    Started on this after work yesterday for about 3 hours and about 4 hours today. All the blocks are done, all the 2-block sections are sewn together, and the whole is ready to sew together. Got half of it done and breaking for lunch... and then probably a nap!

    No matter how I photograph this the red comes out too bright in the photo. It's actually the dark red of the tractors.

    Very cute! Love the layout. Of course, my tractor quilts for my DGS had to be "Green John Deere". He never said simply John Deere! Green is all we have on this farm! I love the red..my favorite color.

    What's it going to be? I can see this as the center of a quilt for a little boy - you've done a great job of keeping everything square and I like the layout.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    It's going to be this. My great-nephew picked out the fabric and I made the design.

    I love the fence you're going to put around it. Keep showing it as it progresses.

    Did one fence section last night to test out sizes and everything. I think I messed up the size and it's 1/2" too short, basically the seam allowance. Not sure how I did that since I was figuring up the sizes of everything as I went, including the seam allowance.

    Ah well... at least I did just one of them instead of 10.

    Whew! Found out that I wasn't wrong about the size of that first one. Seven of the fences are done, 9 more to make. All the pieces are cut out except the backgrounds, fusible is applied to the rails and cut into 1/2" strips ready to applique.
