    Big Red Truck Quilt

    I am into classic and muscle cars. And I have a friend that has a classic big red truck. When I saw this material I knew I had to make him a quilt. Hope he likes it as much as I do.

    That is adorable. Your fabrics work well together with this pattern. (BQ?) I am sure he will enjoy it since you made it especially for him.

    Your choices for the 'other' fabrics and the setting are perfect.

    cute truck quilt
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
