    i posted a thread earlier today wanting help with some ideas for my dad's corvette quilt. here's what i came up with. a little fussy cutting & some strips. now i just need to add some borders & find backing that i think he would like & it will be done! i'm thinking i may end up doing some more fussy cutting of the emblems, flags & words and incorporate them into the borders. thanks for your help today!

    Here is a link to a bunch of Corvette/Auto/Travel fabrics. You might find something here that would work for your backing.

    I am positive your Dad will just flip over this wonderful quilt! You are doing a great job. Made by his DD is like the icing on the cake.
