I just finished this last night for my brother in law's Christmas. I found a fat quarter at the Paducah Quilt show with his classic car on it, so I've spent the whole summer searching for more pieces of the discontinued fabric. I found several pieces and a couple more that complimented it, so I started putting it together last month, fussy cutting the cars. My husband says that if he doesn't like it, he'll be happy to keep it! That won't be a problem...he'll love it...he loves that old car. He's had it 40 years...it was his first car and he even built a garage just to keep it in. (it is worth a fortune)

It was a fun quilt to make!

I love this quilt. And all of my men would too. They laugh at me for collecting machines, but they collect CARS!

A lot of thought and work went into this quilt. I'm sure he'll treasure it as much as the car.

Colors are vibrant, and that quilt says, "Action!"
