    Does your old guy rule?

    Saw this fantastic roadster panel and paired it with some Old Guys Rule and Route 66 fabrics I had on hand. Super easy pattern for panels, goes together quickly. I used black minky on the back and E2E pattern called Hot Nights which look like the flames painted on roadsters. The sayings are funny on the old guys rule fabric. All in all I like this one a lot!

    Great quilt! Did you put batting in or just the minky on the back?

    I always use Hobbs Polydown it is light and lofty not adding to the weight of the minky.

    That is great. The map fabric is great to go with it. Is there a pattern for the quilt? It would look good with many panels. Thanks

    I love it! Clever use of the map print! Any teen-age boys in your family? I bet they'll steal it from you!

    Oh how my husband would enjoy this quilt!! He's 68 and still racing old jalopies and recently spent almost 3 years building himself another race car and it's a beauty. He buys car parts and I buy fabric...match made in heaven!! LOL

    Very fun! I am looking forward to backing a quilt with minky. It is extremely cuddly.
