    Purple Quilt and Cars...

    I'm slowly making each of kiddo's a quilt. The Purple one is my latest and I was on such a roll I started right away on a Big Boy Quilt. I'm thinking of adding some "road" to the center..

    Oh yes. A road running through it would be adorable! Plus then they could run their toy cars up and down the road.

    That's what I thought when I first saw the quilt. It's beautiful. I think that a road would be great. The cars need somewhere to go. It is really cute. Luck Kiddos. BrendaK

    Your purple quilt is beautiful. Looks like a stained glass. I love the cars quilt and your idea of placing a roadway in the center...maybe a stop sign along the road or some other road sign, or traffic light (which has the same colors as the cars). Great quilts. Thanks for sharing.

    The blocks & sashing for the purple quilt are 3 1/2" with 2" triangles on the end of each sashings to make the stars. I cut the outside border 4" to make sure I don't cover up the star points with the binding. I haven't made a quilt yet with a perfect binding. =)

    The cars and quilt are from this book..

    http://www.amazon.com/Growing-Up-Qui...up+with+quilts

    I didn't of course do it just like the one in the book..I never seem to follow the pattern exactly. =)

    Both are great quilts. I like the idea of adding the road to those cute cars.

    That's what I thought, too... a beautiful stained glass window at that! And the cars are simply adorable! I agree... a "road" up the middle would be a great addition. And they could use it for their own cars to run on. Great job on both of them! You've got lucky kids!!!

    Both are terrific! Love the purple, and the cars would look great with a road or two!
