    This quilt was done by a friend when she was young and had her babies. She did all the cars embroidery by hand and set them into blocks. She has stage 4 cancer and is on the highest form of treatment left. She wanted to give the two quilts she made to her kids for Christmas. I quilted them for her with my long arm. I drew in the antique cars, stop light and put a octogan around the cars. She loved it and so did her husband. He didn't know if he wanted to give it to the kids or not. This one means a lot to me. I know it isn't up to some of the beautiful quilts I have seen on here but I made her happy. Thanks for looking at this quilt.

    Sorry this is sideways but this is the whole quilt.
