    My 4 year old nephew loves everything to do with John Deere. His favorite color is John Deere green. He wants to drive tractors when he grows up.

    I used a variation of a Turning Twenty pattern for this, and FMQ on my small machine, adding nephew's name in the border. Be gentle - this was my first FMQ attempt and only my second finished quilt.

    Thanks for looking!

    Does he like the country song "gonna take you for a ride on my big green tractor"? That's what that quilt reminds me of. Great job!
