    This will be an Xmas gift for my 5yr old grandson who LOVES tractors.
    It wasn't difficult just green fabric surrounding the center panel and I made the checkerboard border.
    So why did it take a month to finish??? lol
    I still have to make a Steelers quilt for his older brother by Xmas.
    Hurry hurry....

    You all are so sweet!
    I know it's not a fancy or involved pattern (I kept it simple on purpose...it's for a 5 yr old for Heaven's Sake...lol). But its so nice to get the warm remarks here.
    I have to admit it's 1/2 the reason I post pics now and then!
    This board really is like a family.
    So thank you

    Your DGS is going to love this tractor quilt! You were right to keep it simple, he won't notice a thing but the tractor in the center!! I have a DGS who would flip over this quilt too :D:D:D

    Aren't panels just the greatest! Love the checkerboard border, it really sets the whole quilt off! Good job Nadine! :thumbup:
