    My first quilt

    This is my first quilt....all work was done by me except the quilting....which was done by a local longarm quilter...Tranquility Creations.

    My DH and I own an automotive repair and towing shop, so we travel to different tow truck conventions.
    The quilt was made as a thank you gift for a member of a towing organization in Ohio. When I presented it to her I let her know that it was a gift for her, but if she wanted to put it the silent auction (to raise money for the organization) I understood. She loved the quilt so much she said there was no way she was giving it up.

    The back view shows a close up of the quilting...it's a tow truck hauling a car. The quilt top has material with a tow truck on one and another with cars.

    Hope you enjoy and thank you for viewing.

    I loved your "find the tow truck and car" game! It took me a minute, but I found them . That's a great piecing design, and I'm now puzzling over how to make those rows. Give me a hint, like maybe a pattern...LOL.
