    NASCAR Dale Earnhardt Jr #88 Quilt Top ~ DH's Xmas Present

    This evening I put the boarders on this quilt. I have had the fabric to make this for :blushing: 4-5 years! So I thought I would surprise my DH with it for Christmas. The backing is in the washer right now. It's a soft Dale Earnhardt Sr black #3 flannel. He was a huge Sr fan until he passed away from the track accident. This quilt is "eh" for me to work on as it is not my favorite fabric...lol!! Also, the checker blocks isn't printed fabric but pieced squares. Which took a little time cause when I nest my seams I pin to get the best accuracy possible Will be quilting it this week!

    Hope any NASCAR (yes that is suppose to be all capitals) fans out there enjoy this one, or maybe show your DH if they are fans

    Also meant to say the pattern from this came from a Fons & Porter For the Love of Quilting magazine from about 4-5 yrs ago. If anyone wants to know the year of the magazine I will check for ya so you can see if you have that issue.

    Great quilt. I have a Jeff Gordon panel to make for my son but I haven't decided what to do with it. Your 88 fabric is so cool and vibrant.
